ESCMID-ASM Conference on Drug Development to Meet the Challenge of Antimicrobial Resistance

Antimicrobial drug resistance (AMR) is an urgent global health problem. New antimicrobial drug development isincreasingly 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 inaugural meeting will address the challenges, opportunities and current requirements for antimicrobial drug development for AMR.
