Antimicrobial resistance continues to expand, raising the risk of a future public health crisis. This symposium, organized by the Cambridge Centre for Law, Medicine and Life Sciences and the Center for Advanced Studies in Biomedical Innovation Law (CeBIL) at the University of Copenhagen, explores the complex interactions between law and antimicrobial research and development in order to advance our understanding of this ecosystem. It is hoped that the event will mobilise legal, economic, business, medical and scientific experts - early, mid, and senior career - who recognise the need to work together to both promote antimicrobial innovation and limit the impact of antimicrobial resistance on global health.
