An Uppsala Antibiotics Centre is to be created at Uppsala University. This was announced by Deputy Vice-Chancellor Anders Malmberg at the opening of the Uppsala Health Summit conference on 2 June, 2015. The goal is for this interdisciplinary centre to be a regional, national and international knowledge resource and forum in the area of antibiotic resistance.
‘We want to assume responsibility and take up the urgent challenge in this matter, which is so pressing for humankind. Here, we have a unique capacity to do it with the interdisciplinary approach that’s required,’ says Anders Malmberg, Deputy Vice-Chancellor.
