Cambridge Public Policy SRI


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.

We will hear from an international showcase of speakers and panellists including Professor Dame Sally Davies (Chief Medical Officer, UK), Professor Kevin Outterson (CARB-X), Professor Aaron Kesselheim (PORTAL, Harvard), Dr Christine Årdal (Norwegian Institute for Public Health, DRIVE-AB), Professor Steven Hoffman (York University), Dr Colm Leonard (NICE) and Dr Jean-Pierre Pacaud (GARDP).

Lunch and refreshments will be provided, and the event will conclude with a networking and drinks reception at Christ's College. Tickets cost £30 for industry and University researchers.
