We conduct a significant share of our operations in collaboration with the wider community. Our partners are close: at our own Faculty of Pharmacy, at Uppsala University's Faculty of Medicine and the University Hospital, but also far beyond regional and national borders.

The Collaboration for Prevention and Treatment of Multi-Drug Resistant Bacterial Infections (COMBINE)

COMBINE is a European collaboration in which eleven partners from academia and the pharmaceutical industry are paving the way for more efficient development of new antibiotics. Anders Karlén, Professor of Computer-Aided Drug Design, coordinates the project in which Uppsala University, among other things, coordinates communication and has a prominent role in designing a preclinical reference model for antibiotic development.
