New drugs and faster diagnostic techniques

To fight resistant bacteria, both human and veterinary medicine urgently need new antibiotic drugs. Academic research can make a major contribution to their development. Furthermore, faster diagnostic tests are important to identify resistant strains quickly and treat people and animals adequately.
