Antimicrobial Resistance and Gut Health Symposium, June 16

BioScience Research Collaborative Auditorium 6500 Main St.

This symposium will focus on multi-drug resistant GI pathogens, especially C. difficile, mechanisms of antibiotic action on these pathogens, environmental contamination as a cause of human infectious disease, emerging methods for the rapid detection of antimicrobial resistance in patient specimens, and pharmacodynamic effects of antimicrobials on antibacterial resistance development.

Speakers include:

Ferric Fang, University of Washington
Helen Zgurskaya, University of Oklahoma
Jennifer Auchtung, BCM
Clifford Stephan, IBT
Paula A. Revell, TCH
Tony Haag, BCM
Kevin Garey, UH
Edward Septimus, HCA/TAMU

26th Annual Keck Research Conference


Friday, October 28, 2016
9:00 AM  to 5:00 PM

BioScience Research Collaborative
Rice University
6500 Main St
Houston, Texas, USA

The emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistant pathogens thwarts the effective treatment of microbial infections. To address this public health issue, anti-microbial resistance research is focused on understanding the biology of microbes, their behavior, precisely how they cause disease and how they develop resistance to antimicrobials, in order to discover new ways to combat microbes. This conference will highlight chemical, biochemical, computational, and genomic approaches that provide insights into mechanisms of resistance, treatment strategies and drug discovery of antimicrobials.
Open to the Public / Registration Required
