The Centre for Translational Anti-infective Pharmacodynamics (CTAP) is housed within the state-of-the-art research infrastructure at Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence, School of Pharmacy, The University of Queensland.

The Centre is equipped with advanced pre-clinical infection model facilities and focuses on optimisation of antibiotic dosing regimens for the management of difficult-to-treat infections including the design and translation of novel dosing regimens that suppress the emergence of resistance.

Professor Jason Roberts, a UQ Professor of Medicine and Pharmacy, leads CTAP and its extensive national and international collaboration with world leading experts on antimicrobial pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. The Centre relishes very close collaboration with the antimicrobial pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics working group of the world renowned Burns, Trauma and Critical Care Research Centre at UQ.

CTAP provides research service to pharmaceutical companies on optimization of dosing regimens for novel antibiotic agents to complement preclinical data in support of regulatory submissions. It also runs a number of investigator initiated research projects including training at post-doctoral, research higher degrees and undergraduate level.
