On 9 March 2017, Wageningen University & Research celebrated its 99th Dies Natalis with the theme ‘Towards a global one health’.
NACTAR stands for Novel Antibacterial Compounds and Therapies Antagonizing Resistance. This research programme on the development of new antibiotics and alternatives is commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport and NWO-domain TTW and connects to the National Antibiotic Development Platform (NADP).
On 18 April 2017, the Netherlands Antibiotic Development Platform (NADP) was launched in Utrecht with the project partner, and representatives from science, industry, and government. The aim of the launch event was to show how NADP can help facilitate the next step from academic discovery to accelerate R&D to develop new antibiotics and alternatives to antibiotics.
On Friday April 28, Prof. Marion Koopmans received the degree of Honorary Doctor from the Technical University of Denmark.
