STOA Working Breakfast - Solving Antimicrobial Resistance

EFMC is pleased to announce the STOA Working Breakfast on Solving Antibiotic Resistance, taking place in Brussels on April 28, 2016.

During this STOA Working Breakfast co-organised by the European Parliament´s STOA, EuCheMS, and EFMC, researchers and policy-makers will analyse the global challenge of AMR and explore possible solutions.

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is the ability of microorganisms to withstand attack by antimicrobial drugs such as antibiotics, antifungal or antivirals, and is a serious issue that threatens to render many of the treatments we use today ineffective in the future – from tuberculosis to HIV, from pneumonia to other common infections.
