About

Antimicrobial resistance is one of the biggest public health challenges of our time and fighting this serious threat is a priority that requires a collaborative approach across all sectors. BioInfect will look at the critical issues relating to the development of new anti-infectives, the endemic problem of resistance and the considerations for creating a truly global and effective response to antimicrobial resistance.

We are delighted that Dr John H. Rex, MD will give a keynote address at this years event

Antimicrobial resistance today
Antimicrobial resistance arises when the organisms that cause infection evolve ways to survive treatment. Once standard treatments are ineffective, it is easier for infections to persist and spread. These resistant organisms can be found in people, animals, food and the environment. The rise and spread of antimicrobial resistance are creating a new generation of ‘superbugs’ that cannot be treated with existing medicines. 

Drug-resistant bacteria infect over 50m people worldwide killing over 700,000 people each year. Without effective antibiotics, even minor surgery and routine operations could become high-risk procedures if serious infections can’t be treated.

I am a physician and drug developer with more than 30 years of development and policy experience focused on antimicrobial agents. My experience includes moving antifungal and antibacterial agents from preclinical development thru all development phases in the context of (a) academic positions (NIAID, University
of Texas-Houston), (b) VP-level roles at a pharmaceutical multinational (AstraZeneca), (c) board-level roles in in biotech companies (F2G, Ltd.; Adenium Biotech ApS), (d) Expert-in-Residence at Wellcome Trust, (e) Chief Strategy Officer for CARB-X, and (f) an Operating Partner role with Advent Life Sciences. The first 15 years of my career focused on medical mycology and spanned susceptibility testing methods, in vitro-in vivo translational studies, and clinical trials. More recently, my work has broadened to include advancing novel regulatory and reimbursement paradigms for antimicrobial agents, founding
of the New Drugs for Bad Bugs (ND4BB) program of Europe’s Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), and leadership of an antifungal-focused biotech company.
