Conference topics

 Organized by thematic sessions, the Uppsala Antibiotic Days will host talks on an array of AMR topics:

Drug discovery & Economics

After the golden era of antibiotics, we have been facing a dry pipeline for decades. Here we will examine what is the current situation of the discovery of new antimicrobial drugs and the aspects of financing and economics in this area.

Social Sciences & Education

With behaviour and human action as key aspects of AMR, we will talk in this session about how research on social sciences and education are part of the solution.

Diagnostics

To ensure proper and timely antimicrobial treatment rapid and affordable diagnostics and strain analysis are needed. Here we will explore the latest research and innovation in this area.

The Future of Clinical Trials

With new drugs and treatments in the pipeline, how do we ensure a proper evaluation of their clinical relevance? In this session, we will explore the transformative landscape of clinical trials, with a particular emphasis on the future of evaluating new anti-infective agents.

One Health

Looking at AMR from a One Health perspective, here we will talk about the joint effort of various disciplines that come together to provide solutions for human, animal, and environmental health

Emerging AMR Pathogens 

New resistant pathogens are emerging, including new bacterial species, viruses, fungi, and parasites. Here we will explore resistance with an outlook to the future.
