Annual meeting 2015
The 2015 ISAP symposium took place after the ICAAC and before the Polymyxin Conference in a wonderful conference site in La Jolla near San Diego. The first part of the symposium was dedicated to the memory of Prof. William Craig and looking back to the achievements of our field whereas the second part of the afternoon was dedicated to the future of anti-infective pharmacology. A planned publication will summarise our vision for the future of our field.
Similar to previous years the short presentations of young investigators where interesting, well received and discussed. Seven presentations were selected for presentation. Three young investigators – Amelia N. Deitchman, Justin Lenhard and Sebastian Wicha were awarded with travel grants for their work and the presentations. Mentoring young researchers and providing a friendly and supportive environment for discussing their work is one of ISAP's main goals as well as organising workshops at major conferences.
