The Broken Pipeline of Antibiotics and Ongoing Efforts to Fix It
October 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
This webinar has been prepared in collaboration with CARB-X, a global non-profit partnership accelerating antibacterial products to address drug-resistant bacteria, a leading cause of death around the world.
The webinar is part of the AMR Ambassadors Program open webinars and aims at educating us about the complex process behind antibiotic/diagnostics research, development and approval, challenges associated with it, and the negative implications. This will help us value the antibiotics already approved for use, and hopefully encourage us to educate others to appreciate these antibiotics, and actively take part in their conversation.
We will be inspired to support ongoing efforts, develop creative interventions in our own small ways, and hopefully trigger the interest of tertiary level students and early career professionals to pursue a further education or a career in drug discovery, and development.
Dr. Erin Duffy will be the keynote speaker for this webinar.
