Superbugs & Superdrugs Conference


London, United Kingdom

Our 21st Annual Superbugs & Superdrugs Conference will take place on 18th - 19th March 2019

Inspiring the global commitment required to tackle multidrug-resistance among bacteria populations, as the global threat of antimicrobial resistance continues to grow.

This year's event will gather leaders from pharmaceutical companies, academia and the wider scientific community together with regulatory agencies and public-private partnerships, to discuss the growing threat of antibiotic resistance.

Join us to learn about various strategies in place to support antimicrobial resistance research & development, evaluate the latest scientific advancements for tackling antimicrobial resistance and consider potential novel candidates and alternatives to anti-microbials.

The event will also focus on the strategies pharmaceutical companies use to assist the development of new therapeutics & drugs, how to obtain funding for new projects and address why there is a current lack of incentives for researchers working in antimicrobial resistance research and development.
