Boston University (BU) is the home of CARB-X and the heart of its operations. Based at the BU School of Law, CARB-X is an example of BU’s leadership, collaboration, and engagement with the larger world: a global partnership confronting a dire public health threat – antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

And BU has the expertise to achieve it. A major global research university, BU is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities. BU’s transformative, cutting-edge research – sponsored annually by hundreds of millions of dollars in awards – addresses society’s most pressing challenges.
