UPCOMING | External Events
- The 3rd International Caparica Conference in Antibiotic Resistance 2019
June 10-13 | Caparica, Portugal
The primary objective of this meeting is to bring together researchers involved in antibiotic resistance prevention and control. The meeting will take an integrated approach to research and it will bring about researchers specializing in different subjects related to antibiotic resistance. We expected to present a universal vision of the importance of antimicrobial resistance in different ecosystems and what can be done about it.
- The 5th International Symposium on Environmental Dimension of Antibiotic Resistance
June 9-14 | Hong Kong
- Antibio-addicts? Defining and governing antimicrobial resistance in the age of One Health June 20-21 | Paris-Dauphine University, France
This conference gathers social sciences researchers who have been working on these different issues for several years. Sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists, historians, geographers, researchers in communication and media studies will question the different aspects of the AMR problem. Registration required.
- Antibiotic Guardian Awards 2019
June 27 | St Johns Hotel, Birmingham
The second Antibiotic Guardian Awards will champion organisations and individuals who have demonstrated achievement in tackling antimicrobial resistance at a local, regional or national level.
- 8th Symposium on Antimicrobial Resistance in Animals and the Environment (ARAE 2019)
July 1-3 | Tours, France
The ARAE 2019 symposium aims to provide a global vision of the impact of the use of antibiotics in animals and their environment in the One Health context. All aspects related to epidemiology of resistant animal and zoonotic pathogens, mobile elements containing resistance genes, emerging antimicrobial resistance mechanisms, resistome of microbiotas, and the role of the environment as a source of resistance genes transfer and dissemination will be discussed. Registration opens 1st February, Abstract submission deadline 15th April.
- Technical Solutions to Support Infection Management and Address AMR
July 09 | Translation & Innovation Hub (I-HUB), Imperial College, London
Colleagues from across faculties of Imperial College and collaborators will host a summit on “Technical Solutions to Support Infection Management and Address Antimicrobial Resistance”. This event will showcase the latest research and advances within these fields with a focus on AI, precision prescribing, sepsis and the relevance and application in global health.
- CeBIL Annual Symposium: Legal Innovation to Support the Development of Antimicrobial Drugs
September 06 | Cambridge, UK
This event aims to explore the complex interactions between law and antimicrobial research and development to help design a better legal toolkit to promote antimicrobial innovation and limit the impact of resistance on global health. We will hear from an international showcase of speakers and panellists including Professor Kevin Outterson (CARB-X), Professor Dame Sally Davies (Chief Medical Officer, UK), Professor Aaron Kesselheim (PORTAL, Harvard), Dr Christine Årdal (Norwegian Institute for Public Health, DRIVE-AB), Professor Steven Hoffman (York University), Dr Colm Leonard (NICE), Professor Sharon Peacock (Cambridge), and Dr Jean-Pierre Pacaud (GARDP). Please register here.
- ASM/ECSMID Conference on Drug Development to Meet the Challenge of Antimicrobial Resistance
3-6 Sept 2019 | Boston, USA
New antimicrobial drug development is increasingly viewed as a priority by National and International bodies. There are relatively few agents in developmental pipelines and a paucity of identified microbiological targets that can be exploited for drug development. Co-sponsored by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) and the European Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID), this multidisciplinary meeting will address the challenges, opportunities and current requirements for antimicrobial drug development for AMR. Abstract submission deadline is expected to be in April 2019.
- Antimicrobial Resistance of Bacterial Pathogens
29 September – 4 October | Hanoi, Vietnam
Deadline for applications 30th May 2019
This course will provide practical laboratory training in methods for AMR detection in bacteria, discuss theoretical aspects of evolution and spread of AMR, explore the use of whole-genome sequencing and bioinformatics analysis and demonstrate methods for AMR surveillance and control. This week-long course is free to attend and open to applicants based in Asia who are actively engaged in, or soon to commence, research, clinical practice, provision of clinical services or policy development related to AMR in bacteria. Applicants should be PhD students, clinical trainees or specialists in medical microbiology, postdoctoral scientists, senior technicians, or research assistants with a Master’s degree.
