Associate Professor Heidi Drummer and Professor Gilda Tachedjian will be among the speakers at the 2017 Solutions for Drug-Resistant Infections Conference (SDRI 2107), in Brisbane.
Associate Professor Drummer will present in the session on vector control and vaccines, which will explore new perspectives on prevention as a key strategy to reducing drug-resistant infections.
Professor Tachedjian will contribute to the session on alternate therapies, which will examine new approaches to treating infection, including antibody-based therapeutics, stimulation of the immune response, probiotic approaches to alter the microbiome, phage therapy, and other treatments with the potential to help overcome the threat posed by antimicrobial resistant infections.
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 program is expected to attract 400 international participants and will provide a 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.
The 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.
