National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR): “AntiResist”
Basel will host the new NCCR that focuses on novel approaches to combat antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Prof. Nina Khanna and Prof. Adrian Egli from the Department of Biomedicine and University Hospital will have a leading role in the bacteriological research activities for antibiotic resistance.
The NCCR is led by the Biozentrum of the University of Basel and involves research groups from Basel, Zurich, Lausanne, and Israel. The Swiss National Science Foundation is supporting this NCCR in its initial funding phase from 2020 – 2023 with 17 million Swiss francs.
