Bacterial Persistence and Antimicrobial Therapy 2018: 10-14 June 2018, Switzerland
The Bacterial Persistence and Antimicrobial Therapy Conference will take place on 10-14 June 2018 in Ascona, Switzerland. It will bring together the world’s leading experts in this field using a variety of approaches.
Bacterial infections represent an increasingly urgent threat to human health worldwide with major pathogens being resistant to all available antibiotics. In addition, antibiotic therapy can fail to clear bacterial infections even in the absence of clinically detectable resistance. This is likely caused by drug-tolerant bacteria that survive even extensive exposure to antibiotics. The investigation of underlying mechanisms of microbial persistence and antibiotic tolerance is a newly emerging research field with already spectacular and fascinating insights.

Located in Ascona, on the shore of Lake Maggiore in southern Switzerland, Monte Verità is the ideal retreat: a place for reflection and discussion, introspection and creativity, relaxation and activity, surrounded by nature and steeped in history – the ideal setting for developing ideas and holding talks.
