Longitude Prize AMR Diagnostics Workshop and Lecture at UCLA

01 Apr 2019, 08:30 to 19:30
California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI), University of California, LA

We invite all local institutions, researchers and companies that are actively working on point-of-care diagnostic tests to impact antibiotic resistance to this event, followed by a reception.

The Longitude Prize is an international challenge prize competition that will ultimately select one point-of-care diagnostic test to receive a payout of £8 million ($9.1 million). The winning test will significantly reduce misuse or overuse of antibiotics by creating an affordable, accurate and rapid point-of-care diagnostic test. This test must be practical to use in North America and Europe as well as low and middle-income countries.
