Antimicrobial Resistance 2013

4th to 6th February 2013
Le Meridien Hotel Bangkok, Thailand


Antimicrobial resistance represents one of the key health challenges of the 21st century. Concerted efforts will be crucial to reduce the existing socioeconomic burden of antimicrobial resistance. The primary objective of this meeting is to bring together researchers and clinicians involved in infectious diseases prevention and control. The meeting will take an integrated approach to research and will focus on a spectrum of diseases including parasitic, bacterial and viral diseases, disease pathogenesis and resistance, as well as novel approaches to new drugs for newly emerging infections. It will bring about researchers specializing in different disciplines including bacteriology,parasitology, virology, epidemiology, host genetics, immunology, structural biology, medicinal chemistry, and/or treatment and prevention strategies.
