BIA chooses Antibiotic Research UK as charity of the year

O'Neill Commission warns on global impact of infections

Antibiotic Research UK logo The UK BioIndustry Association (BIA) announced its choice of Antibiotic Research UK (ANTRUK) as its charity of the year for 2015.

Professor Colin Garner, chief executive of ANTRUK, the world's first charity formed to tackle antibiotic resistance, said: “As a new charity we are keen to see as many people as possible being made aware about our objective of developing new therapies against antibiotic resistant bacteria.

“By being selected as the BIA's 2015 charity means that Antibiotic Research UK will be made known to some of the country's most influential and knowledgeable drug developers.”

The BIA will host the first major fundraising event in January in the form of a Gala dinner with over 600 guests and the Natural History Museum. 

The announcement was made the same day that UK published its first progress report on its five-year antimicrobial resistance strategy.
