About Us

The Antimicrobial Pharmacodynamics and Therapeutics (APT) Group is based in the Department of Clinical and Molecular Pharmacology, Institute of Translational Medicine, University of Liverpool.

APT is one of relatively few academic laboratories in the world that can develop pharmacodynamic packages for new antimicrobial agents. We study how antimicrobial agents are distributed in the body (pharmacokinetics) and their effect on killing microorganisms (pharmacodynamics). We partner with other researchers to develop new drugs via the Centre for Antimicrobial Pharmacodynamics. We are interested in new ways to tackle antimicrobial drug resistance (AMR) including the individualisation of antimicrobial therapy.

We have a streamlined package available for the characterisation of PK-PD relationships and identification of regimens for early clinical trials. Visit CAP
