8th Louis Pasteur Conference - Nosocomial Infections

17.11.2010 - 19.11.2010 All day

The 8th Louis Pasteur Conference (CLP8) will overview the major features of nosocomial infections, such as the mechanisms of microbial transmission, the establishment of infections, the antibiotic resistance capacities of microbe communities, the unbalance between pathogenic and commensal microorganisms upon immunosuppression, and the occurrence of infectious catastrophes such as septic shock. The goal of the Conference is to integrate, in a multidisciplinary approach, the most recent epidemiological concepts with up to date molecular and cellular analysis of the pathogenesis of nosocomial microbes.

CLP8 should be a unique opportunity to understand how research can help controlling the threat of nosocomial infections.
