Superbugs & Superdrugs 2016

March 16, 2016 - March 17, 2016

SMi will host the 2016 Superbugs & Superdrugs conference on March 16-17, 2016 in London, United Kingdom.

In its 18th year, this respected event addresses the core challenges in developing solutions to combat the threat of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.  The event aims to equip delegates to take on the challenges of conserving the effectiveness of existing antibacterial drugs, developing new ones and tackling biosecurity and Ebola threats.

Bringing in voices from pharma, academia, government, regulatory perspectives, consultants and funding bodies this conference is the ideal meeting place to share the latest updates, case studies and strategies to seize the opportunities ahead and usher in the next generation of superdrugs.

Highlighted topics include:

  • Advances in molecular diagnostic devices: Sample preparation and PCR
  • Whole genome sequencing as a gold standard approach for molecular strain typing
  • Outbreak investigations using whole genome sequencing
  • Case study: Rapid diagnosis of drug-resistant forms of TB
  • What can we expect within the next 10 years and how much will it cost?
  • Sample to result processes – fluidics and microfluidics
  • Case study: Rapid diagnosis of drug-resistant forms of TB
  • Optimising speed and accuracy for rapid detection
  • Global territorial differences in research and investment
  • Boosting surveillance efforts in high-threat areas
  • The threat of MDRP and their financial impact
  • Strategic collaborations that have strengthened product pipeline
  • Efficiently modelling PK and PD for optimizing dosage requirements
  • Developing an antibiotic with potential for use in multiple therapeutic indications
  • High-risk innovation beyond traditional drug discovery
  • Systems medicine approach to understand pathogenic mechanisms
  • New in vitro models to understand drug resistance at the tissue site of infection
  • mAb products targeting MDR Gram negative infections
  • New paradigm to prevent and treat severe Staphyloccocus aureus infections
