4 - Advocacy in Action: Addressing Antibiotic-Resistant Infections | Mission Moment

Jul 23, 2022 10:30am ‐ Jul 23, 2022 11:55am


Scientists worldwide agree that innovation is needed to address the shortage of effective antibiotics. Our Infection Research Initiative supports much-needed research and development, but new policies are needed to promote a sustainable, robust antibiotics pipeline and a marketplace that rewards innovation. During this panel, attendees will learn more about the Foundation’s commitment to funding and advocating for solutions to address the need for novel antibiotics to prevent antibiotic-resistant infections.

Virtual attendees, stay tuned for a special livestreamed segment, the Catch Up, where we will catch up with in-person volunteers immediately following this session.
