Join us in this free series of GRC Connects offering three events, open to all members of the scientific community. The first two events will feature moderated keynote presentations by renowned scientists in the fields of prokaryotic and eukaryotic efflux transporters to learn, share, and collaborate on challenging questions of antimicrobial resistance, and efflux transporters controlling pharmacological and toxic processes in health and disease. Each keynote session will be followed by a Q&A and short talks selected from abstracts. The third and final event in this series will focus solely on highlighting the research by early-career scientists through selected abstracts. Please submit an abstract of your work for consideration here!
Our first keynote speaker in this series will feature Laura JV Piddock, Scientific Director of Global Antibiotic R&D Partnership (GARDP) and Professor of Microbiology, University of Birmingham, UK. Her talk is titled, “GARDP: Helping to Advance the Discovery & Development of New Treatments for Bacterial Infections”.
Register for the second and third event in this series here.
Topics for short talks include, but are not limited to:
1. The Silent Pandemic of Antibiotic Resistance: Developing Therapeutics to Combat Multi-Drug Transporters
2. Cancer Drug Resistance and Therapeutic Modalities and Interventions
3. Efflux Pumps in the Balance between Pharmacology and Toxicity: Genomics and Pharmacogenomics of Drug Resistance across Diseases
4. Innovative Biochemical and Biophysical Methods to Elucidate Structure-Function Relationships
