Biophysical Society Thematic Meeting on Physical and Quantitative Approaches to Overcome Antibiotic Resistance

The Biophysical Society Thematic Meeting, Physical and Quantitative Approaches to Overcome Antibiotic Resistance will be held in August 14–18, 2022, at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.

 

Biophysics has much to offer in our efforts of understanding antibiotic resistance and developing new antibiotic treatments. The quantitative approaches and methodologies we use in biophysics including spectroscopy, single-molecule and single-cell microscopy, computational modelling, and development of functional assays are ideally suited to answering many of the pressing questions related to antibiotic resistance.

This meeting brings together researchers with a wide range of expertise to discuss the latest research and in biophysics and microbiology of drug resistance. The meeting hopes to foster cross-disciplinary collaborations and encourage new synergies to tackle this global health problem.

The program will focus on imaging approaches to antibiotic resistance, measuring and modelling community interactions in antibiotic resistance, biophysics of drug uptake and efflux by bacteria, novel drug targets and engineering approaches to drug resistance.

The early abstract deadline is May 2, 2022.
