About this Event

The Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) Center for Antimicrobial Resistance and Therapeutic Discovery presents this symposium to share, promote and advance work on investigations in antibiotic resistance and treatments.

Who Should Attend

Faculty, researchers, and affiliated staff at Lifespan, Brown, and URI who are interested mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance and developing therapeutic countermeasures. Physician scientists and junior faculty are encouraged to attend.

Learning Objectives

  • To better understand the complex mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance;
  • To learn more of therapeutic approaches and counter measures in research;
  • To better understand the possible translational applications to target antimicrobial resistance.

KEYNOTE

Michael Gilmore, PhD. Director Indectious Disease Institute, is currently the Sir William Osler Professor of Ophthalmology, Department Ophthalonogy, Microbiology and Immunobiology, Harvard Medical School.

Topic: "Ancient origins of innate antibiotic and disinfectant resistance in enterococci"
