Data-driven developments for pandemic preparedness

Join the BIA in Daresbury this November for our latest regional spotlight event which will include an update from CEO, Steve Bates as well as in-person discussion, networking and lunch.

We will be looking at data-driven developments for future pandemic preparedness, with a particular focus on antimicrobial resistance. During a series of short presentations and a panel discussion, we will hear from a number of organisations operating at the bleeding edge of AMR research, from monitoring and identifying new threats, through translating research to the clinic, and scaling up the production of treatments on the scale needed to prevent future pandemics.
