AMES, IOWA (April 6, 2021) — The National Institute of Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Education (NIAMRRE) is pleased to announce Resilient Biotics as a new startup industry member.

“We use a One Health approach to address AMR through cross-sector engagement and coordinated action,” said NIAMRRE Executive Director, Paul Plummer. “The ability to decrease or replace antibiotics in the animal health industry by using live biotherapeutics to treat or prevent disease is a big step forward in preserving the ability to use antibiotics for generations to come.”

Membership is available to academic, industry (commodity groups, pharma and health organizations, and retailers), affiliate (government agencies, nonprofits, and member associations), and startup stakeholders interested in cross-sector engagement to address global AMR challenges. Applications are accepted year-round for organizations dedicated to advancing the One Health approach—a collaborative methodology to achieve optimal health outcomes between people, animals, plants, and their shared environment.
