AntiMicrobial Resistance (AMR) is one of the most urgent public health threats. Actions are needed to reverse the curve of antimicrobial resistance dissemination and to develop innovative drugs (antibiotics, antiparasitic, antifungals, antivirals, antivectors) and therapeutic strategies for safer and sustainable treatments of infectious diseases.
