Exploring the frontiers of innovation to tackle microbial threats – a workshop

This 1.5-day public workshop will examine the major advancements in scientific, technological, and social innovations that have been taking place to tackle microbial threats, including diagnostics, vaccine development and production, new antimicrobials as well as non-pharmaceutical interventions and surveillance. The workshop will allow participants to explore innovations that occur at the human-animal-plant-environment interface and those that are practical and can be implemented in different resource-level settings.

Our Chief Scientific Officer, Dr Ranga Sampath, will be taking part in Session IV-Part B: Incubating action through novel ecosystems, whose objectives are to

  • Examine novel ecosystems and hubs that nurture companies to accelerate research and development against microbial threats
  • Discuss the key environmental features of novel ecosystems that enable innovations to tackle microbial threats
