“Antibiotics transformed modern medicine but overuse and inappropriate use have led to dangerous bacteria developing deadly resistance. Drug discovery must go hand-in-hand with concerted action to ensure antibiotics of last resort are reserved for patients where first-line treatments will not work. And we must ensure these treatments are available in all countries for those who need them.”
— Tim Jinks, Head of Infectious Diseases Interventions, Wellcome. Watch this video on what CARB-X is doing to address the rise of drug-resistant bacteria.
