New Antibacterial Discovery & Development
This Gordon Research Conference brings together industry, academic and government leaders involved in the discovery and development of novel antibacterial agents. Antibacterial resistance has spread globally at an alarming rate, continues to increase, and presents a tremendous global health challenge. Multi-drug resistance has become commonplace in many disease-causing bacteria. Infections that were once easy to treat are becoming difficult, and in some cases, impossible to treat and people are suffering severe illness or dying as a consequence. There is an acute need for novel antibacterials to combat this growing resistance.
What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.
This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "New Antibacterial Discovery & Development" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS)
series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History
section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here
.What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
