In this Q&A, George H. Talbot, M.D., HABP/VABP Project Principal Investigator and Project Team Co-Chair, discusses the project’s history and significant achievements to-date that will help design more efficient clinical trials and facilitate the antibiotic approval process.

The Biomarkers Consortium is a public-private biomedical research partnership managed by the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health that endeavors to discover, develop, and seek regulatory approval for biological markers (biomarkers) to support new drug development, preventive medicine, and medical diagnostics.

The Biomarkers Consortium is helping create a new era of precision medicine, with more highly predictive markers that have an impact during a patient’s illness or lifespan. Our goal is to combine the forces of the public and private sectors to accelerate the development of biomarker-based technologies, medicines, and therapies for the prevention, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease.
