Antimicrobial Resistance: Meeting the Challenge

  • Start Date:

  • London, UK

Our drug development services team are attending Antimicrobial Resistance: Meeting the Challenge.

The Society for Applied Microbiology will hold its 3rd Antimicrobial Resistance Conference in collaboration with the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the most important international issues for human and animal health and the global spread of AMR threatens to negate cures for infectious disease that began with the introduction of penicillin. Systematic misuse and overuse of antibiotics in human medicine and animal husbandry have put every individual at risk. The Society for Applied Microbiology joins the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences in responding to the global challenge to help tackle the AMR crisis.

This 2-day conference will present our current understanding of AMR, through key note presentations, case studies, expert opinion, and panel discussions. We invite you to join in the AMR debate to help find solutions to this important challenge. Day 1 will concentrate on areas spanning human health, diagnostics and agriculture, whereas day 2 will concentrate on issues related to AMR in wastewater treatment. Therefore, the conference is aimed at a wide range of professionals, including clinical, biomedical, veterinary, pharmaceutical, chemical, environmental, and wastewater experts.
