We are delighted to announce that Future Science Group (FSG) will donate £1 to Antibiotic Action for every new MedChemNet member in September, joining the fight to combat antibiotic resistance. In addition, MedChemNet will be covering recent developments in antibiotics published in Future Medicinal Chemistry throughout September.

MedChemNet is keen to support and highlight the work of Antibiotic Action as they seek to inform and educate all about the need for discovery, research and development of new treatments for bacterial infections.

Community Manger Gerald Clarke said of the initiative “MedChemNet is dedicated to exploring the challenges in human health posed by antibiotic resistance and engaging academia and industry to discuss the medicinal chemistry which can overcome these challenges. As such, we are wholeheartedly in support of Antibiotics Action in its mission to spread the message about this cause. Antibiotic resistance is one of the greatest threats of the 21st century and we are delighted to be able to cooperate with Antibiotics Action in its efforts.”

Professor Laura Piddock, Director of Antibiotic Action responded to MedChemNet’s initiative:

Antibiotic Action welcomes the support that this MedChemNet initiative offers. The dual crisis of antibiotic resistance and the depleted antibiotic pipeline challenge the basis of modern medicine as we know it. Antibiotics are life-saving, life enhancing agents that underpin a range of therapies from cancer chemotherapy regimens to organ and joint replacement surgeries. Antibiotic Action exists to ensure all – public, governmental agencies, regulatory bodies, scientists, healthcare providers – are aware of the need to discover and develop new antibiotic agents and we support and encourage membership of networking groups such as MedChemNet where expertise can be shared and new innovative collaborations can be fostered and encouraged.
