The role of metals and biocides in the selection of antibiotic resistant bacteria
A Marcus Wallenberg symposium
The aim of this symposium is to gather some of the most active European scientists in the field to discuss mechanisms and evidence around the theme of the conference, both from an evolutionary, environmental and clinical point of view.

Given the increasing global health challenges with antibiotic resistance, it is timely to devote a conference to the role of other agents than the antibiotics that may promote resistance. The aim of this symposium is to gather some of the most active European scientists in the field to discuss mechanisms and evidence around the theme of the conference, both from an evolutionary, environmental and clinical point of view. The symposium is open to scientists and students as well as to others interested in the field. Participants will have the opportunity to listen to state-of-the art presentations from leading European scientists. These presentations will be complemented by up to 10 shorter presentations selected from submitted abstracts, followed by a panel discussion at the end. Thus, registered participants are invited to submit abstracts no later than 22 February. The abstract (maximum 1600 characters including space) should include a title. Speakers for the shorter presentations will be appointed based on the abstracts. Speakers that are appointed will receive a confirmation e-mail the 29 February. Submit abstracts via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions regarding the scientific content can be address to Prof Joakim Larsson, Department of Infectious Diseases, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, email@example.com Please note that there will be no poster presentations.
A detailed programme is available for download at this webpage (to the right). Lunch is included for registered participants. Please state eventual food preferences in the registration form. (Registration form is found further down at this website).
