INTERDISCIPLINARY COURSE ON
ANTIBIOTICS AND RESISTANCE
16 - 24 OCTOBER 2021 | Les Pensières, Annecy, France
Registration details will be announced in 2021.
The emergence and spread of bacteria resistant to many drug classes seriously threaten all branches of modern medicine. There is currently no course providing advanced instruction on antibiotics and resistance. The specific goal of ICARe is to bring leaders in academics and industry together with trained scientists at the dawn of their careers. Cutting-edge approaches for the study of resistance and antibiotic discovery will be examined.
ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE & DISCOVERY
MODES OF ACTION & MECHANISMS OF RESISTANCE OF EXISTING CLASSES
ORIGIN, MUTATIONS, & TRANSFER OF RESISTANCE
ANTIBIOTIC DEVELOPMENT & APPROVAL
STRATEGIES FOR MORE FOCUSED APPLICATIONS OF ANTIBIOTICS
SUSCEPTIBILITY DETERMINATION & IDENTIFICATION OF RESISTANCE MECHANISMS
NEW ANTI-INFECTIVE STRATEGIES
ICARe is designed for assistant professors, new industry scientists, ID fellows, and postdoctoral research associates, as well as members from developing areas contending with the challenge of managing antibiotic resistance with limited resources. Attendance will be limited to 40 students and will reflect the global nature of the problem.
