4-7 Sep 2018: ESCMID-ASM Conference #3 on AMR (initial flyer)

Dear All:

Now available is the initial flyer for next year’s ESCMID-ASM Conference on Drug Development to Meet the Challenge of Antimicrobial Resistance. This third meeting will be 4-7 Sep 2018 in Lisbon and will follow the prior (and excellent!) meetings #1 (Vienna, 2016) and #2 (Boston, 2017).

Although you can’t register for it yet (and I’ll let you know as soon as know how to do that), I strongly encourage you to at least go ahead and mark your calendar to plan to attend #3 if possible. As encouragement, see here my two notes from meeting #2 (the CARB-X & GARDP bootcamps and the great lectures by EMA, FDA and NICE). These notes don’t cover everything that happened, but they do give you a taste of the content.

All best wishes, –jr
