5 hospitals awarded CDC grants to develop antibiotic resistance solutions

The CDC awarded over $15 million to 41 private and academic investigators, including five hospitals, to pilot innovative solutions that protect patients from antibiotic resistance.

These awards, part of the agency's Antibiotic Resistance Solutions Initiative, are intended to increase the CDC's innovative approaches to fight antibiotic resistance.

The CDC and investigators will improve antibiotic stewardship, analyze antibiotic-resistant germs and genes, investigate the human microbiome for how it relates to antibiotic resistance and develop new tools for antibiotic resistance detection.

This year's hospital awardees are:

1. Cleveland VA Medical Center
2. Henry Ford Health System (Detroit)
3. Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center (Baltimore)
4. Rush University Medical Center (Chicago)
5. Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
