COMBACTE-MAGNET stands for Combatting bacterial resistance in Europe – Molecules against Gram-negative infections.

This project aims to find better options to deal with that threat.
The COMBACTE-MAGNET consortium brings together researchers from five pharmaceutical companies. And over thirty leading academic medical centers from ten European countries. Together we will increase our understanding of the needs of patients and doctors in intensive-care units across Europe. This knowledge will be used to advance the development of well-targeted, life-saving treatments.
