FACING A GLOBAL HEALTH CRISIS

 

The World AntiMicrobial Resistance Congress USA gathers C-level decision makers from government, funding agencies, pharma, academia, hospitals, labs, and payers to discuss the urgent need for new antibiotics. The Review on Antimicrobial Resistance released their final report this year outlining the rising danger of AMR and the steps that must be taken in order to overcome this danger. This event is about gathering the experts in the industry to determine how best to approach taking these necessary steps. 

This 2-day conference presents solutions through key notes, case study presentations, expert opinion and roundtable discussions, and invites key influencers such as BARDA, NIH, FDA, grant agencies, pharma and academia, in the AMR discussion. This is the 2-day exhibition and conference you cannot afford to miss.

 

" The evolution of antibiotic resistance is now occurring at an alarming rate and is outpacing the development of new countermeasures capable of thwarting infections in humans. "

President Barack Obama

Meet the experts

 

The World Anti-Microbial Resistance Congress 2016 is bringing togehter all of the greatest minds in the antimicrobial field together to tackle this very issue. It’s time to stop talking about the problem and start discussing solutions, which is why we brought in Pharma, academia and the government.

" We’re in the post-antibiotic era. There are patients for whom we have no therapy, and we are literally in a position of having a patient in a bed who has an infection, something that five years ago even we could have treated, but now we can’t. "
