Sponsoring and exhibiting at FEMS2021
Our Congress is one of the leading meetings of its kind that connects thousands of microbiologists from around the world. It features symposia and workshops led by prominent scientists in their respective fields. The goal of this international gathering is to provide a comprehensive forum for the exploration and discussion of various topics in microbiology. Our congresses usually attract ~2000 attendees and are made possible with great thanks to our sponsors and exhibitors.
Our next Congress, FEMS2021, will be held from 11 – 15 July 2021, in Hamburg (Germany) in collaboration with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Hygiene und Mikrobiologie.
Worldwide, infections are resuming their role as highly effective killing diseases, as current treatments are failing to respond to the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). In this minireview, the impact of AMR in healthcare systems and the major bacteria behind it are highlighted. Ecological aspects of AMR evolution and the complexity of its molecular mechanisms are explained. Major concepts, such as intrinsic, acquired and adaptive resistance, as well as tolerance and heteroresistance, are also clarified. More importantly, the problematic of biofilms and their role in AMR, namely their main resistance and tolerance mechanisms, are elucidated. Finally, some of the most promising anti-biofilm strategies being investigated are reviewed.
