14 June Duke-Margolis workshop on non-traditional products: Post-meeting materials

Dear All:

wrote previously about the Duke-Margolis workshop done in collaboration with FDA on the challenges of developing non-traditional antimicrobial products. We’re now back from that workshop and I can report that it was excellent. We covered an array of strategies for non-traditional products and heard an exceptional series of company case vignettes. I’ll say that I was very impressed by the day’s content.

If you missed it, Duke-Margolis has now posted the meeting materials and made the entire meeting available for streaming. I encourage you to make time to listen to the video. Please note that the video as currently posted starts with ~35 minutes of a message advising you to “Wait for the meeting to start.” It’s easy to skip over this to the beginning of the presentations.

I hope that at some point the slides will also be posted, but at least for now here’s the deck that Kevin Outterson and I used to give a scene-setting talk. It includes our ideas on product archetypes, a summary by Kevin of the current CARB-X portfolio, a discussion of the need for Pull incentives, and some ideas we’d propose for ways to go forward.

All best wishes, –jr
