Superbugs & Superdrugs USA
November 12 - November 13
The 2018 Superbugs & Superdrugs USA conference will be held 12-13 November 2018 in Iselin, New Jersey.
This 3rd annual Superbugs & Superdrugs USA conference will help participants to learn about pathogen focused drug development; discover the best methods to overcome bacterial resistance through novel modes of action; discuss the state of developments within the antifungal space; develop an understanding of funding opportunities which support antibacterial research and development; gain insight into new techniques through case-study examples of rapid diagnostic methods currently being used within the field, making this event the perfect platform to strengthen knowledge in key principles.
