cWIDR and Broad Institute Collaborators focus on Antibiotic Resistance

The Center for Women’s Infectious Disease Research held a meeting with the Broad Institute on Monday, June 5.  This meeting was focused on addressing the crisis our medical community is facing in Antibiotic Resistance.  They discussed ways to expand their interdisciplinary collaborative efforts to continue to learn from each other and launch new initiatives that will benefit society by leading to practical insights into common infections such as urinary tract infections and catheter associated infections and MRSA.  The cWIDR working with the Broad hopes to revolutionize the development of antibiotic sparing therapeutics.  The meeting was sponsored by Fimbrion Therapeutics.
