“Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of BARDA’s mission, why it is focused on supporting the research and development of products for addressing AMR, BARDA’s current priorities and future objectives, and how interested product developers and sponsors can partner with BARDA to achieve our mutual goals of bringing new products to the market that are effective in the treatment of drug-resistant bacterial infections.”

Senior Scientific Director, Dr Anthony Simon Lynch from Janssen Research & Development commented:

“The three sessions focused on novel platforms and agents in the treatment and prevention of diseases caused by so-called ‘Superbugs’ are all of interest as they cover a broad spectrum of alternate approaches and it’s always good to be cognizant of new science and potential opportunities.”
