It has become clear that infectious diseases are among the greatest threats to human health and global stability. Chief among these threats is the rise in antibiotic resistance, which endangers our ability to treat otherwise curable infection. The capacity to discover and develop novel agents to fill the pipeline as existing antibiotics are lost to increasing resistance has to date been limited. The goal of this Keystone Symposia conference is to present cutting-edge approaches to antibiotic discovery, including application of expanded chemical space, systems chemical biology, and artificial intelligence; and novel strategies for treating resistant infection, including CRISPR, vaccines, antibodies, phages and conjugates. The promise, challenges, and development paths of these new approaches and strategies will be discussed in the context of lessons learned from prior antibiotic development programs, and new innovations in clinical and regulatory pathways. Additionally, this conference will be held jointly with “The Human Microbiome: Ecology and Evolution.” This pairing will help to facilitate exploration of the impact of antibiotics on the microbiome and the microbiome on antibiotic resistance.

Keystone Symposia is committed to maintaining a positive and respectful environment at its meetings. To this end, please review and comply with our policies
Registered attendees of one meeting in a joint pair may participate in sessions of the other, pending space availability.
All those submitting an abstract should plan to attend in-person to ensure extensive interaction opportunities. At this time we recognize that a small percentage of submitters may be unable to travel due to border crossing restrictions and/or institutional travel bans. If these restrictions are still in place during the meeting, permissions for remote presentations will be given for the exceptional circumstances listed above.
NOTE: In the event that your abstract isn't selected for a short talk and you're not able to travel the abstract fee is nonrefundable. All paid abstracts will be included in the meeting app and meeting materials available online.
