- 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 Resistance3-6 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.

- Conference on: Antibiotic Stewardship & Conservation in Africa20 -23 October 2019 | Durban, South AfricaThis Conference will highlight the research conducted over the period of the project in addition to exploring the unique African face of AMR and AMS in the One Health approach more broadly.
- Antibiotic Research UK Annual Lecture and Mini symposium 24 October 2019 | Royal College of Pathologists, London, UKThe 2019 Annual Lecture ‘Understanding One Health Approaches to AMR: Dream or Scream? will be given by Professor Tim Walsh, School of Medicine, University of Cardiff. Tim is a world-renowned molecular epidemiologist whose work includes identifying genes for the transmission of colistin resistance. In addition to Tim’s talk there will be both oral and poster presentations on research supported by ANTRUK at Oxford University, the University of Sheffield, St Georges London, the Royal Veterinary College and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
