SAVE THE DATE: Oct. 7 HHS Public Forum on Developing Rapid Diagnostics to Combat Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria
Join stakeholders and ID Week attendees at a public forum in San Diego on October 7, 2015 to provide input on the types of diagnostics that may be developed to combat the growth and spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria.
HHS intends to gather this feedback for a planned prize competition, where up to $20 million will be made available for the development of successful rapid diagnostics that may be used by health care providers to identify bacterial infections and slow the threat of resistance.
The public forum will be held on October 7, 2015, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in San Diego, California, in conjunction with IDSA's ID Week. See Announcement of Public Consultation on Antimicrobial Resistance Rapid, Point-of-Care Diagnostic Test Challenge to learn more and provide feedback.
