Antimicrobials and Resistance: Opportunities and Challenges
Organizer(s): Gautam Dantas and Jennifer A. LeedsDate: October 29 - November 01, 2017
Location: Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Antimicrobial-resistant (AMR) infections claim numerous lives around the globe annually. This problem is exacerbated by a steady increase in global antimicrobial use and abuse in the clinic and agriculture, and a dearth of novel antimicrobials making it to market. If these scenarios continue unchecked, AMR will cumulatively cost the global economy around 100 trillion dollars by 2050. This conference focuses on the latest work understanding and combatting AMR, including clinical perspectives on AMR diagnostics and management, translational academic perspectives on design of drug regimens and combinations that suppress AMR, pharma perspectives on recent successes and failures in novel antimicrobial development and clinical trials and basic science perspectives on the ecology and transmission of evolving AMR determinants. While these stakeholders are similarly motivated to identify and develop therapies to treat the exceptional, unmet medical need of worsening AMR, their spheres rarely overlap at scientific conferences, leading to communication barriers between subject matter experts. This conference attempts to address this challenge by engaging diverse global perspectives on these topics, including speakers and attendees from academic research, industrial drug development, and healthcare practice and policy.
