Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. See program details.

Solutions for Drug-Resistant Infections (SDRI 2017)

  • This event has passed.

For decades, Asia Pacific countries have played a leading worldwide role in research in antimicrobial drug discovery, molecular diagnosis and infectious diseases.

To be held in Brisbane, Australia, SDRI 2017 is the first multi-disciplinary scientific conference for the Asia Pacific region focused on Solutions for Drug Resistant Infections. This inaugural conference theme is New Drugs for Drug-Resistant Infections. The program of SDRI 2017 is expected to attract 400 international participants and will provide a fantastic forum for researchers and industry representatives working in the space of microbiology, virology, parasitology, genomics, pharmacology and medicinal chemistry, to network and discuss new ways to solve the global challenge of drug-resistant infections. Our goal for SDRI 2017 is to lead a concerted discussion to set three priorities and guide research efforts towards global solutions for drug resistance research.

Conference themes:
• Antimicrobial drug discovery
• Improvements to existing anti-infective agents and repurposing
• New Drug Targets
• Alternate therapies
• Vector control and vaccines
• International Models and Funding
• Successes and failures in the pipeline

Keynote speakers include Professor Dame Sally Davies DBE, FMedSci, FRS Chief Medical Officer for England, United Kingdom and Professor Ramanan Laxminarayan PHFI and CDDEP, United States.
