When asked what was being done to strengthen the antibiotic pipeline, Dr. Christopher Houchens, Branch Chief of BARDA's Antibacterials Program and one of this year's keynote speakers said:
"BARDA and NIAID have worked together to support the establishment of a Biopharmaceutical Accelerator. The CARB-X, represents one of the world's largest public-private partnerships focused on the preclinical discovery and development of new antimicrobial products. This partnership between BARDA, NIAID, the Wellcome Trust of London, the AMR Centre of Alderley Park, and Boston University School of Law, promotes innovation and funding to accelerate the number of antibacterial candidates in the preclinical drug-development pipeline. The end goal of CARB-X is to move promising antibiotic candidates through preclinical development to the point where they would merit additional private and/or public investment for clinical development and regulatory approval."
A preliminary list of attendees and a series of interviews with some of those speaking such as Pfizer, Janssen and BARDA, is available to read in the event download centre.
