  • 2nd RSC / SCI Symposium on Antimicrobial Drug Discovery

    November 12-13, 2018   London, United Kingdom

    At a time when rising antimicrobial resistance is decreasing the efficacy of existing treatments, it has never been more important to refresh the drug pipeline with new therapies and therapeutics that act on new targets with novel modes of action. Faced with this growing healthcare issue, renewed interest from both industry and academia has led to a resurgence in antimicrobial drug discovery and the development of new and innovative technologies and approaches for combating infection.

    Following the first successful event in 2016, this meeting will examine the current state of the art from a medicinal chemist's perspective. Coinciding with World Antibiotics Awareness week, a two-day programme of speakers from industry and academia will highlight the challenges associated with discovering and developing new antimicrobials, whilst also showcasing emerging alternative strategies that are being developed to tackle infection.

    Bringing together leading exponents in the field from industry and academia, the meeting will appeal to anyone with an interest in antimicrobial resistance and antimicrobial drug discovery. With great opportunities for academic-industrial partnerships, researchers from both sectors will also benefit from the networking opportunities that the meeting will offer.
