All-Party Parliamentary Group on Antibiotics: How close are we to meeting the urgent need for new antibiotics?
November 13, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Antibiotics APPG-A exists to raise the profile of antibiotic resistance, the need to preserve antibiotics through education on their appropriate use including non‐human uses, the lack of new treatments for bacterial infections and to help accelerate efforts to discover, research and develop new treatments.
The British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy serves as Secretariat to the APPG-A.
This meeting will focus on the work of partnership bodies like CARB-X and the Global Antibiotic Research & Development Partnership (GARDP) in relation to antibiotic development, pipeline coordination, and the legacy of the DRIVE-AB initiative.
Speakers include Kevin Outterson, Executive Director of CARB-X
