Forging new chemistry solutions
for novel antibiotics
At Forge Therapeutics, we are developing novel antibiotics targeting bacterial metalloenzymes.
As bacteria become more and more resistant to conventional antibiotics, common medical procedures such as surgery, chemotherapy, and dialysis become increasingly risky.
Over 700,000 people
worldwide die from antibiotic-resistant infections and estimates indicate that the annual toll could rise to 10 million people by 2050.
More than 2.8 Million
antibiotic-resistant infections occur in the U.S. each year, leading to more than 35,000 deaths.
Every 11 Seconds
someone in U.S. gets an antibiotic-resistant infection and every 15 minutes someone dies.
$20 Billion is estimated
to cost the U.S. each year in antibiotic resistance.
