Last week, ERA4TB members attended two key events focused on bringing together researchers and project members working in the fields of tuberculosis and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR).

On 15th March 2023, the 4th AMR Cross-project meeting was held in Basel. The meeting brought together all the AMR Accelerator partners including ERA4TB, UNITE4TB, RespiriNTM, RespiriTB, TRIC-TB, AB-Direct, GNA Now, PriMAVeRa and COMBINE.

Each project presented project updates and promising stories, with ERA4TB’s Dr Santiago Ramon-Garcia highlighting ERA4TB’s key achievements. Scientific interest group meetings were then held to explore ways for greater collaboration in a number of areas including science communication, machine learning in AMR and Animal models.

Following the cross-project meeting, the 7th AMR Conference was also held in Basel, focusing on the topic of Novel Antimicrobials and AMR diagnostics. ERA4TB’s Ainhoa Lucía Quintana, Assistant Professor at the University of Zaragoza and Santiago Ferrer Bazaga, Investigator and Scientific Advisor for Drug Discovery at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, presented in the ‘Towards better treatment combination against tuberculosis’ session.
