10 May 2021 Antibiotics Webinar | Antibiotics vs. Phage Therapy

Online

The antibiotic-resistance crisis demands the development of novel therapeutic approaches. Phage therapy (the use of bacteriophages to combat bacteria) is one of them. However, antibiotics are still important weapons in our fight against pathogenic microorganisms, and must be considered as we assess any novel approaches. This webinar is focused on the comparison and interplay between antibiotics and phage therapy.

Invited speakers are:

  • Dr. Breck A. Duerkop, Assistant Professor, Department of Immunology and Microbiology, University of Colorado School of Medicine, Aurora, CO, USA,
  • Dr. George Tetz, MD, PhD, Human Microbiology Institute, NY, USA,
  • Dr. Ryszard Miedzybrodzki, MD, PhD., Institute of Immunology and Experimental Therapy, Wroclaw, Poland.

They will discuss various fascinating subjects related to phage-mediated dictation of antibiotic resistance and polymicrobial interactions, efficacy of phage therapy relative to the use of antibiotics, and also phages as new human pathogens. Therefore, different points of view will be presented, and different sides of phages and antibiotics will be discussed.

Experienced researchers, junior scientists, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as all other people interested in phage therapy and antibiotics are welcome to attend this webinar.

When? 10 May 2021 at 3.00pm CEST | 9.00am EDT | 9.00pm CST Asia

25 May 2021 Antibiotics Webinar | Mobile Elements and Antibiotic Resistance

Online

The inappropriate use of antibiotics has promoted the rise in antibiotic resistance in bacteria. Resistance evolution is often mediated by horizontal gene transfer events. This webinar will provide the latest perspectives on the mobilization events and defence/counter-defence systems involved in antibiotic resistance evolution.

The panel of scholars includes:

  • Dr. João Botelho, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology, Germany
  • Dr. Daria Van Tyne, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, USA
  • Dr. Rachel Wheatley, University of Oxford, UK
  • Dr. Adam Roberts, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, UK.

The webinar is suitable for everyone interested in furthering their understanding of the role of mobile genetic elements on antibiotic resistance evolution.

When? 25 May 2021 at 3.00pm CEST | 9.00am EDT | 9.00pm CST Asia.

8–17 May 2021 The 1st International Electronic Conference on Antibiotics—The Equal Power of Antibiotics And Antimicrobial Resistance (ECA 2021)

Online

The 1st International Electronic Conference on Antibiotics—The Equal Power of Antibiotics and Antimicrobial Resistance (ECA2021), chaired by Prof. Dr. John E. Gustafson, will be held on https://eca2021.sciforum.net from 8th –17th May 2021.

ECA2021 offers you the opportunity to participate in an international scholarly conference without the concerns and expense of traveling—all you need is access to the Internet. During the conference period, you will be able to upload papers, posters, presentations (including videos), and comment on other presentations, as well as engage with fellow scholars in real-time. In this way, the conference offers a novel opportunity to exchange opinions and views within the scholarly community and to discuss the papers and latest research in a discussion forum.
