Infection Research to Meet Current and Future Challenges

Infectious diseases remain major causes of morbidity and mortality throughout the world. Scientific efforts providing better knowledge about pathogenic mechanisms can result in both innovative new research tools and new strategies for prevention and treatment. In the case of bacterial infections, there are pressing current issues regarding emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases and increasing problems with antibiotic resistance, for example. In this symposium, the invited experts will highlight approaches and examples from different areas of current research about bacteria and viruses. The scientists will also participate in a panel discussion where they will exchange ideas about how to better meet the future challenges posed by infections.

Abstracts and more information will be published at this website in due time.
