Excising Infection in the Surgical Environment (ExISE)' is a newly funded Arts and Humanities Research Council research project within the major cross-UK Research Council initiative 'Tackling Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)’. A perhaps unusually interdisciplinary team of academics in infectious diseases, pathogen transmission, architecture, history and philosophy of science, fluid mechanics, and history of art will introduce a design perspective to AMR research by investigating the physical environments for surgery.
