INEOS donates £100 Million to create new Oxford University Institute to fight Antimicrobial Resistance

The new INEOS Oxford Institute for Antimicrobial Resistance is established at the birthplace of penicillin development. Resistance to existing antibiotics is arguably the world’s greatest healthcare challenge, known as the ‘silent pandemic’. The donation by INEOS is one of the largest ever to a UK university and creates a new model of partnership to tackle this urgent global issue. Researchers will seek to develop new drugs for animals and humans, as well as promote more responsible use of the antibiotics we have. Lord Jim O’Neill said, “This new institute could be the breakthrough moment the global AMR challenge needs”.
