The department of Pharmaceutical Technology and Biopharmacy (Prof. Erik Frijlink) of the Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy (GRIP) has received a 422K€ grant from EU’s Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI). The “Inhaled Antibiotics in Bronchiectasis and Cystic Fibrosis” (iABC) project aims at the development of new antibiotics to be used in pulmonary diseases. The consortium consists of 19 partners from 7 countries. These groups combine experience and proven expertise and success in microbiology, antibiotic development, clinical trials, endpoints and patient registries. The activities in Groningen will focus on the development of formulations and devices for pulmonary administration of new Beta-lactam antibiotics.

IMI is Europe's largest public-private initiative aiming to speed up the development of better and safer medicines for patients. IMI is a joint undertaking between the European Union and the pharmaceutical industry association EFPIA.
