Antimicrobial Agents and Resistance

The Antimicrobial Agents and Resistance (AAR) track explores the latest research pertaining to antimicrobial drugs and their resistance mechanisms. The AAR track highlights a broad range of topics, including surveillance and global epidemiology, mechanisms of resistance, antimicrobial discovery (from pre-clinical investigations to post-marketing data), antimicrobial stewardship, novel approaches to infection diagnosis and treatment and pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic principles to optimize antimicrobial design and use.
