Scope of COMBACTE
COMBACTE – Combatting Bacterial Resistance in Europe – was created to meet the challenges of clinical development of antibacterials in response to the worldwide growing problem of antibiotic resistance. This Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) program represents an unprecedented partnership between industry, academia and biotech organizations to combat antibiotic resistance in Europe by tackling the scientific, regulatory, and business challenges that are hampering the development of new antibiotics. In collaboration with other consortia within IMI’s New Drugs 4 Bad Bugs (ND4BB) program, the COMBACTE projects will enable more rapid and efficient development and commercialization of much-needed new antibacterial treatments and diagnostic tests.
This research project receives support from the Innovative Medicines Initiative Joint Undertaking under grant agreement No. 115523 | 115620 | 115737 | 777362 resources of which are composed of financial contribution from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) and EFPIA companies in kind contribution.COMBACTE Website
