Plenary and Keynote Speakers
For decades, Asia Pacific countries have played a leading worldwide role in research in antimicrobial drug discovery, molecular diagnosis and infectious diseases.
SDRI 2017 is a multi-disciplinary scientific conference for the Asia Pacific region focused on Solutions for Drug-Resistant Infections. This inaugural conference theme is New Drugs for Drug-Resistant Infections. The conference will take place at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in Australia from 3 - 5 April, 2017.
The program is expected to attract 250 international participants and will provide a fantastic forum for researchers and industry representatives working in the space of microbiology, virology, parasitology, genomics, pharmacology and medicinal chemistry, to network and discuss new ways to solve the global challenge of drug-resistant infections. Our goal for SDRI 2017 is to lead a concerted discussion to set three priorities and guide research efforts towards global solutions for drug resistance research.
- Antimicrobial resistance
- Antimicrobial drug discovery
- Improvements to existing anti-infective agents and repurposing
- New drug targets
- Alternate therapies
- Vector control and vaccines
- International models and funding
- Navigating the pipeline
- Panel - top 3 priorities to guide AMR research
We look forward to welcoming you to Queensland in 2017.
