The Leibniz Forschungsverbund (LFV) “INFECTIONS in an Urbanizing World - Humans, Animals, Environments” (InfUrb) produces interdisciplinary research across several sections of the Leibniz Association, conceived of and delivered by a close and committed network of relevant Leibniz partners, associated Leibniz partners and non-Leibniz research institutions. This networking is designed to generate strong and long-term synergies for tackling one of the most important health and societal challenges facing the world today, namely infectious diseases, specifically those caused by antimicrobial resistant (AMR) germs in urbanizing societies. A range of endemic infectious diseases are major drivers of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Moreover, humankind is increasingly challenged by newly emerging infectious agents that are often zoonotic in nature, such as the recent coronavirus outbreak.
