Workshop Antimicrobial Resistance on Biomaterials
Scope: bring together leaders in science, medicine and industry to discuss how antimicrobial surfaces can be used rationally to reduce the risk of antimicrobial resistance evolution and spread on medical implants.
The workshop will be held as a Satellite symposium during the 8th Thesinge biofilm meeting on biomaterial-associated infections.
Resistance to antimicrobials
Resistant bacteria on implants
Resistance evolution in biofilms
The target audience includes microbiologists working on biofilm formation and antimicrobial resistance, material scientists developing antimicrobial biomaterials, physicians dealing with biofilm infections on implanted materials, and material companies supplying biomaterials for clinical use.
