The CARB-X Mission

Did you know?

Last year antibiotic resistant infections were associated with 23,000 deaths in the United States, 25,000 in Europe, and over 700,000 worldwide.

CARB-X (Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria Accelerator) was launched in August 2016 to accelerate pre-clinical product development in the area of antibiotic-resistant infections, one of the world’s greatest health threats. CARB-X was established by BARDA and NIAID of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services along with Wellcome Trust, a global charitable foundation dedicated to improving health. This partnership has committed $450 million in new funds over the next five years to increase the number of antibacterial products in the drug-development pipeline. It reflects a new approach to how antibacterial research and drug development is identified, funded and accelerated to the clinic. The CARB-X goal is to move promising antibacterial candidates through the critical early stages of product development so they can attract additional private or public investment for clinical stage development.
