According to Gizmodo, pharmaceutical company Novartis will shut down its antibacterial and antiviral research programs and lay off 140 employees at its Emeryville, California location. Novartis said in a statement, "While the science for these programs is compelling, we have decided to prioritize our resources in other areas where we believe we are better positioned to develop innovative medicines that will have a positive impact for patients." In recent years, fellow companies AstraZeneca and Eli Lilly have also shuttered their antibiotics research program. Even though new antibiotics are still regularly discovered, their development has slowed to a crawl over the recent decades.
