Russian Federation | Website

Date of designation

12 December 2022

Areas of work

  •  Raising awareness on AMR through various advocacy efforts for AMR

  • Capacity building activities in the surveillance of AMR, antimicrobial use (AMU) and residues
  • Supporting Eastern Europe and Central Asia, conducting collaborative research studies for identification and characterization of drug-resistant microorganisms
  • Promote good agricultural practices and prudent use of antimicrobials by supporting the development and maintenance of a collaborative research network on AMR in the Countries of Eastern Europe, Caucasus and the Central Asia region, and participating in collaborative research on AMR, especially related to the development and improvement of methods and alternatives to antimicrobials 

Key activities

  • Support for assessment of the national laboratory and surveillance system using FAO-ATLASS in the region;
  • Serve as laboratory reagents bank/laboratory warehouse and provide support for shipment;
  • Conduct research studies in the field of a range of revealed microorganisms in food products: identification, phenotyping and gene analysis of their resistance to antimicrobials,
  • Conduct molecular analysis of multi-drug-resistant strains and sharing information with FAO about the cases of such isolates detection as well as identification of new resistance to antimicrobials including genetic markers of bacteria resistance,
  • Studying the effectiveness of using molecular diagnostics and sequencing methods for the identification of microorganisms isolated from food products and genetic markers of resistance based on reagent kits developed or being developed at the Institute,
  • Establish the reference materials collection (i.e. reference strains for quality control) at the Institute and upon request make it available to other laboratories in the region.
  • Provide expert advice, including on AMR regulation/legislation or risk management
  • Conduct research on AMR, particularly those related to developing and improving practices and alternatives to antimicrobials
