“Each year in the United States, at least 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die each year as a direct result of these infections” - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

"As resistance increases, scientists are in a race to “outsmart” bacteria by working around the mechanisms that cause resistance" - National Institutes of Health (NIH)

“A post-antibiotic era – in which common infections and minor injuries can kill – far from being an apocalyptic fantasy, is instead a very real possibility for the 21st Century” - World Health Organization (WHO)

“This problem affects us all” - Public Health England

At the Emory Antibiotic Resistance Center (Emory ARC), we are performing cutting-edge research to combat antibiotic resistance and improve human health.

Your critical gift will support:

  • New research projects
  • Development of new antibiotics
  • Training of the next generation of scientists

Please support Emory ARC and let us together prevent antibiotic resistance and preserve the power of antibiotics for generations to come.
