Synapse Presents: Antimicrobial Resistance – The Post-Antibiotic World

March 18, 2020 @ 4:45 pm - 7:45 pm

Time: Wednesday March 18th (16:45 – 19:45)

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) poses a serious threat to global public health. AMR will occur naturally over time, but extensive overuse of antimicrobials in humans and animals is speeding up the process. World Health Organization (WHO) released a report in 2019 calling for urgent reaction to prevent the emerging AMR crisis. According to the report, if no action is taken, drug-resistant diseases could cause more than 10 million deaths every year by 2050 – which is more than cancer.

Antimicrobial Resistance (PROMO) by Synapse – Life Science Connect

Emerging new resistance mechanisms are spreading globally, and only a few new antimicrobial drugs are able to reach the market. The result is that some of our most powerful drugs are becoming useless and we can no longer treat common infectious diseases. Although AMR is becoming a recognized global issue, WHO is still calling for more focus on R&D, awareness and education, and alternative investments in the area so we can avoid this future crisis.

To explore the topic, we have invited different speakers who will share their perspective on how to battle this global health challenge, ranging from research and clinic to innovative new technologies and alternative investment strategies.

Join us for this event if you are curious about the current and future approaches to tackle the challenge of AMR.



Will be announced soon.
