ICARe Interdisciplinary Course on Antibiotics and Resistance
October 16 - October 24
The emergence and spread of bacteria resistant to many drug classes seriously threaten all branches of modern medicine. There is currently no course providing advanced instruction on antibiotics and resistance. The specific goal of ICARe is to bring leaders in academics and industry together with trained scientists at the dawn of their careers. Cutting-edge approaches for the study of resistance and antibiotic discovery will be examined.
The objective of ICARe is to train the next generation of scientists implicated in the study of bacterial resistance to antibiotics and the finding of new drugs. ICARe is designed for assistant professors, new industry scientists, ID fellows, and postdoctoral research associates, as well as members from developing areas contending with the challenge of managing antibiotic resistance with limited resources. Attendance will be limited to 40 students and will reflect the global nature of the problem.
