Antimicrobial Resistance from Bench to Practice

26th to 27th September 2018, Havana, Cuba

The Cuban Society of Microbiology and Parasitology has the pleasure to invite you to the International Conference on antimicrobial resistance from bench to practice, which will be organized jointly with the European Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID), the Spanish Society for Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology (SEIMEC), The Lancet Infectious Diseases and the Pan-American Association for Infectology (API).

It is well known that resistance to antimicrobials is one of the most serious health problems nowadays. This year’s conference summons leading figures in microbiology, infectology, hospital epidemiology and public health for an updating exchange about the medical impact this phenomenon has, for an early detection, interpretation and therapeutic management of the infections caused by bacteria, fungi and viruses.

This event will count on the participation of well-known international experts and will be the appropriate space to link closer the health sectors of the Americas, Europe and other parts of the world in the fight against the antimicrobial resistance.
