Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance
 

EUROPE –  NORDIC – U.S. SYMPOSIUM New Frontiers in Antibacterial Resistance Research’ Stockholm on 20-21 January, 2016

Antibacterial resistance is accelerating at an alarming pace, leading to a global increase in morbidity and mortality due to resistant bacterial infections. The US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the EU Joint Programming Initiative on AMR are committed to funding basic, translational and clinical research to address this growing public health threat. “New Frontiers in Antibacterial Resistance Research” will increase the Trans-Atlantic dialogue and scientific collaboration to enhance research addressing antibacterial resistance. The workshop objectives are:

  1. To discuss cutting-edge approaches to address antibacterial resistance
  2. To foster communication and research collaborations among scientists in the US and the EU
  3. To share information on funding opportunities to advance antibacterial resistance research

Sponsors: 

    • The EU Joint Program Initiative for Antimicrobial Research
    • The Swedish Research Council
    • The U.S. National Institutes of Health: National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Fogarty International Center
