ANTIGONE involves fourteen academic partners from seven European Member states. It is a truly multidisciplinary consortium, bringing together human medicine and veterinary medicine, including leading scientists that have operated throughout their careers at the crossroads of human and animal health. As such, ANTIGONE exemplifies the necessary collaboration between both research domains in order to identify the factors promoting the pandemic potential of zoonotic pathogens, informing improved pandemic preparedness, prediction and intervention strategies. Moreover, ANTIGONE shows complementarity along the dimension of scientific disciplines, where virologists, microbiologists, bacteriologists, pathologists, immunologists, epidemiologists, ecologists, anthropologists, entomologists, informaticians, mathematical modelers and structural biologists collaborate in one integrated project.
