Fighting AMR

Microbes find their ways to beat the antibiotics and become resistant to also the last resort versions of them. If antibiotics don’t work, what will protect us from harmful infections?

Solutions are in slowing down the process of resistance by not abusing antibiotics and in finding new antibiotics. Finding these solutions is a complex and costly process that needs to be tackled globally. If you are active in fighting AMR, you will find opportunities on this page to help you untangle the complexity, join or start collaborations and find funding.
