Investigation of alternative regulatory and reimbursement models for antimicrobial agents

This PhD research project is aimed at investigating alternative regulatory and funding models for antimicrobial drugs.

Lead organisation(s):

University of Adelaide

Project type:
In progress

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 antimicrobial resistance 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.

PhD candidature began Feb 2017 and is due for completion Feb 2020
