International Advanced Course on Antibiotics (IACAb)

10.10.2016 - 21.10.2016 All day

The increasing occurrence of resistance to antibiotics and the emergence and spread of bacteria resistant to all drug classes seriously threaten all branches of modern medicine. There is currently no course providing advanced instruction on antibiotic discovery, development, and rational use. The specific goal of IACAb is to bring leaders and innovators in academics and industry together with highly trained scientists at the dawn of their careers. Cutting-edge approaches and technologies for determination of antibacterial activity, detection of potential resistance mechanisms, antibiotic discovery, chemical optimization and usage that maximizes their utility and minimizes the development of resistance will be examined.
