STAR-China is a Newton Fund-supported research programme being implemented by a consortium of seven universities, four in the UK and three in China. The primary focus is cross-disciplinary research on antibiotic resistance in China across three separate but linked work packages, together with research capacity development. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hub has also developed an evolving portfolio of new research projects addressing COVID-19 and its implications for antibiotic resistance and stewardship.
