We are pleased to announce that the Community for Open Antimicrobial Drug Discovery (CO-ADD) has been awarded a not-for-profit Google Ad Grant worth USD $10,000 a month.
Google Ad Grants empowers not-for-profit organisations through in-kind AdWords advertising, to promote their missions and initiative on Google search result pages.
CO-ADD is a global initiative of The University of Queensland’s Institute for Molecular Bioscience and is funded by the Wellcome Trust and UQ.
CO-ADD reaches out to chemists in academia and research organisations across the world who have compounds ‘sitting on shelves’ that were not designed as antibiotics and would not otherwise be screened for antimicrobial activity.
These compounds are screened at no cost against a key panel of drug-resistant bacterial strains.
This grant will advance CO-ADD’s global outreach campaign to reach as many chemists as possible to invite them to send compounds for screening.
