Community for Open Antimicrobial Drug Discovery

The threat of antibiotic-resistant bacteria continues to rise, but the number of new treatments available has flatlined.
This has placed us dangerously close to a return to the pre-antibiotic era, when even simple infections caused death.

Now is the time to act.

The Community for Open Antimicrobial Drug Discovery (COADD) is screening compounds from around the world for antimicrobial activity. COADD aims to help researchers worldwide find new, diverse compounds to combat drug-resistant infections.

The World Health Organization has declared antimicrobial resistance to be one of the greatest threats to human health. The global rise of superbugs must be met with a global force of research, discovery and the implementation of antibiotic stewardship programs in hospitals.
