The immunity-AMR Project: A new Op+lait initiative

A new multidisciplinary research team composed of Christopher Fernandez-Prada, David Langlais, Jocelyn Dubuc, Éric Paquet, and Simon Dufour, based in the province of Québec, and involving multiple centers (UdeM, McGill, and U. Laval), has decided to explore how genetic mutations may contribute to cases of antibiotic treatment failure, AMR, and persistent or recurring infections in dairy cows.
