Originator, AMR Insights: Towards a world free from Antimicrobial resistance

Dr Maarten B.M. van Dongen is originally a Molecular & Medical Microbiologist. After his PhD in Biochemistry at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, he has worked for the international pharma and biopharma industry in The Netherlands, Switzerland, Finland and Belgium. Later he advised Netherlands and international public and private organizations in the domain of Life Sciences. As an advisor Maarten was increasingly asked to lead large projects in the field of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). In 2015, he was asked by the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sports to design a national collaborative structure for the development of new antibiotics. In 2016, together with 12 Dutch organisations, he explored the potential of a new to set up a global information platform on AMR. In 2017 he founded AMR Insights and decided to focus his professional activities on combating the global threat of AMR. AMR Insights informs, educates and connects professionals with the aim to curb Antimicrobial resistance. It has set up a global Ambassador Network with now over 450 Ambassadors in some 60 countries. Maarten is the co-founder of the Dutch Consortium Antibiotics and Pharmaceutical Ingredients from Water and the Consortium Serious Gaming AMR. AMR Insights has the ambition to develop into a global information platform and competence centre on Antimicrobial resistance.  Maarten is committed to eliminating antimicrobial resistance because he does not accept that millions of innocent people need to die as a result of resistant bacteria and other microorganisms.
