The Stuart B. Levy Center for Integrated Management of Antimicrobial Resistance at Tufts (Levy CIMAR) is a collaborative and cross-disciplinary initiative with a mission to deliver new and innovative solutions to combat AMR. Partnering Tufts Medical Center and Tufts University’s schools of Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, and Arts & Sciences (as well as members from Engineering, Nutrition, and Drug Development) under a single umbrella, the Levy CIMAR is uniquely poised to lead AMR research, drug discovery, patient care, and education. The Levy CIMAR believes that to effectively fight AMR, scientists must take a "One Health" approach to understanding disease transmission and the mechanisms by which we can stop it. One Health prioritizes the relationships among people, animals, the environment, and the foods we all consume as critical avenues by which drug-resistant microorganisms spread from one to another. Our team includes experts in fields critical to addressing AMR through One Health, including microbiology, infectious disease, veterinary medicine, engineering, epidemiology, global health, drug development, and policy.
We believe that together we can preserve the effectiveness of existing antimicrobial drugs and establish a much-needed pipeline to develop new ones.
The Center Manager of the Tufts Combination Therapy Design Center will work with CIMAR leadership and faculty to implement combination therapy design as a fee-for-service. The Manager will advertise and consult with potential customers, manage and execute contracted projects, manage research technicians, generate reports, and optimize experimental and analytical infrastructure.
