Antibiotic Resistance Action Center (ARAC)
The Antibiotic Resistance Action Center (ARAC) was created to reduce antibiotic resistance worldwide. ARAC, housed in the Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University, is led by microbiologist Dr. Lance Price, an internationally-recognized and respected scientist pioneering the use of genomic epidemiology to understand how the misuse of antibiotics in food animals affects public health.
“Our central mission is to bring together epidemiologists, microbiologists, communications experts, policy experts, together under a single roof, working day in and day out, to curb these superbugs and to protect antibiotics."
