BIO Market News
Duke University recently received $10 million in science research funding from the National Institutes of Health to create an Antibacterial Resistance Leadership Group to conduct research lab investigations into the causes of antibacterial resistance. The new research grant was awarded in fiscal year 2014 to the department of internal medicine at Duke University Schools of Medicine and project leader Dr. Vance Fowler.
This most recent research grant follows a $2 million NIH award for similar studies awarded in June of 2013. Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. spotlighted this funding last summer on the Science Market Update blog and quoted NIAID Director Anthony S. Fauci, M.D. from an article on the NIH website:
“Antibacterial resistance is a serious and growing public health threat that is endangering the global medical community’s ability to effectively treat conditions ranging from simple skin infections to tuberculosis. Through this new clinical research network, we will strengthen our existing research capacity and address the most pressing scientific priorities related to antibacterial resistance.”
