Treatment Optimization Pillar
Canada’s Role in Supporting Antibiotic R&D
Project Key Words: Antibiotics, Research and Development, Canada
Principal Investigator: Aidan Hollis, PhD
Trainees: Babak Sahragardjooneghani, MA Student; Aashay Tripathi, PhD Student
Project Theme: Policy, Economics & Sustainability
We aim to provide policy guidance for federal and provincial governments as to how Canada should support innovation in antibiotics.
Why is This Important?
Many high-income countries are making significant investments in alternative mechanisms to support antibiotic R&D such as market entry rewards, CARB-X, and GARDP. Canada has stayed on the fringes of this international effort.
