Abstract

 

Antimicrobial resistance has become a major threat to public health. Inappropriate use of antibiotics had and still has a major effect on resistance evolution. Rapid diagnostics of the pathogen and determination of its antimicrobial susceptibility will be one strategy for more effective antibiotics treatments as well as for epidemiological surveillance of resistant pathogens. Also, new insights in antibiotics resistance mechanisms can support the development of new antimicrobials. In this session, the speakers will focus on both the latest advances in antimicrobial diagnostics and the pathogen's resistance mechanisms.
