  • 2nd SCI/RSC Symposium on Antimicrobial Drug Discovery

    November 12-13, 2018   London, United Kingdom

    Rising antimicrobial resistance is decreasing the efficacy of existing treatments for infection. With the alarming prospect of a post-antibiotic era, it is vital that we refresh the drug pipeline with new therapies and therapeutics that act through novel modes of action. With pressure from governments and increased public awareness of this growing problem, renewed interest from industry and academia has led to a resurgence in antimicrobial drug discovery, with the exciting prospect 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 in antimicrobial drug discovery 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 strategies that are being developed to tackle infection.

    Early-career researchers wishing to give a short talk are encouraged to submit a one-page abstract by Friday 15 June 2018.

    Deadline for early bird registration is 1st October 2018.
