10.07.17 - 14.07.17 - Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of Barcelona (c/Casanova, 143)
This 5-days international Summer School is focused on the current challenges of antimicrobial resistance including: molecular bases of antimicrobial resistance, antimicrobial stewardship, strategies to control the emergence and spread of multidrug resistant bacteria in different settings, design of new rapid diagnostic tools, research for the development of new drugs, novel therapeutic and diagnostic strategies as well as interventions to tackle antimicrobial resistance. Aspects related with technological transfer will also be developed during the course.
This Summer School is supported by:
- University of Barcelona
- Eurolife (Network of European universities in life sciences)
- REIPI (Spanish network for research in infectious diseases)
Objectives of the Course:
By the end of this course, it is expected that the students will have a good understanding of the following areas:
- The major problems associated with antimicrobial resistance.
- The current and future tools to detect antimicrobial resistance both in clinical and research settings.
- The different specific and integrative measures available to control the emergence and dissemination of multidrug and extended-drug resistant bacteria.
- The tools available for recognising, analysing and solving research questions concerning the detection of antimicrobial resistance and the design of potential new antibacterial drugs.
- New strategies to discover and develop new antibacterial drugs.
- The procedures involved in the development and licensing of a patent for specific products to tackle antibiotic resistance.
