The New Antibacterial Discovery and Development GRC is a premier, international scientific conference focused on advancing the frontiers of science through the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished research, prioritizing time for discussion after each talk and fostering informal interactions among scientists of all career stages. The conference program includes a diverse range of speakers and discussion leaders from institutions and organizations worldwide, concentrating on the latest developments in the field. The conference is five days long and held in a remote location to increase the sense of camaraderie and create scientific communities, with lasting collaborations and friendships. In addition to premier talks, the conference has designated time for poster sessions from individuals of all career stages, and afternoon free time and communal meals allow for informal networking opportunities with leaders in the field.
The antibiotic resistance crisis is among us, and with it, the urgent need to tackle this global health threat has never been greater. Yet each step in the discovery and development process, from target validation and inhibitor optimization to clinical trial design and product commercialization, poses formidable challenges. The New Antibacterial Discovery and Development GCR will turn these challenges into opportunities to promote interdisciplinary innovation while addressing the global need for more effective antibiotic therapies.
The conference will offer a forum where participants of all backgrounds and career stages explore solutions to current bottlenecks in antibacterial drug development, creating bridges between Academia, Industry, and Governments. Importantly, the meeting will provide early career researchers and trainees ample networking opportunities with highly experienced leaders in a positive and inclusive environment. We hope to see you in Ventura!
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. The preliminary program will be available by June 21, 2023. Please check back for updates.
