Community for Open Access Antimicrobial Drug Discovery (CO-ADD)

Lead organisation(s): 
Institute for Molecular Bioscience, The University of Queensland
Project type: 
Research
Status: 
In progress
Summary: 
CO-ADD is a not-for-profit initiative led by academics at The University of Queensland. Our goal is to screen compounds for antimicrobial activity for academic research groups for free. Compounds are tested against five key bacterial pathogens and two fungi. Researchers with positive results can publish or patent their findings, and can get further advice on compound development. We aim to help researchers worldwide to find new, diverse compounds to combat drug-resistant infections.
Timeframe: 
The project commenced in February 2015 and is currently active
