- 7 August 2018This PhD research project is aimed at investigating alternative regulatory and funding models for antimicrobial drugs. The current economic model (where sales volumes and price determine the return on investment for a drug) does not foster appropriate antimicrobial use. Financial risks associated with AMR has resulted in a decline in the marketing of new drugs & insecurity of supply of current antimicrobials. This project is focused on the Australian market within a global context.University of Adelaide
