Antimicrobial candidates

PACE has announced a partnership with the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) to support innovators developing new antimicrobials. PACE is focused on removing barriers and connecting the antimicrobial resistance (AMR) research and development ecosystem to accelerate and strengthen the pre-clinical pipeline. Leveraging the UKHSA’s Open Innovation in AMR platform, the collaboration will support the evaluation of new antimicrobial candidates from PACE-funded projects to help generate new scientific breakthroughs. Successful projects will have access to UKHSA facilities to test panels of clinical strains of bacteria.
