A3: Antibiotic drug targets and resistance – 14466
(1 hr/week; 1 CP; Fall 2020)

New title: New Approaches to Tackle Antibiotic Resistance
Please note that this lecture series replaces the lecture series on Antibiotic Drug Targets and Resistance.
This lecture series was redesigned in the scope of the recently established Swiss-wide research network on antibiotics called AntiResist. This research program is sponsored by the SNSF as one of its National Competence Centers in Research (NCCR) and brings together research groups from different disciplines including infectiologists/clinicians, molecular and computational biologists as well as tissue engineers.
AntiResist strives for a better understanding of processes caused by bacterial pathogens in infected patients and attempts to simulate these conditions in tissue models. The ultimate goal is to find new antibiotics and develop alternative strategies to fight antibiotic-resistant bacteria by directly linking basic with clinical research.
Internationally renowned scientists from different disciplines will be presenting their latest findings and will discuss how their work relates to a better understanding of infection processes and antibiotic therapy.
We expect an audience of microbiologists, infection biologists, clinicians, and engineers involved or interested in the AntiResist research program.
To gain 1 CP, participation to the complete lecture series is obligatory. No more than 2 unexcused absences will be accepted. We request zoom participation with video transmission in order to confirm attendance.
• The lectures will be presented by ZOOM and take place on Mondays 17.15 pm (Zürich time).
• Exceptional time chances necessary for overseas speakers will be announced.
