Virtual US/Australian Virtual ISAP Scientific Meeting
As discussed in our Annual Meeting in the fall, we wanted to initiate a ‘time-zone optimized’ virtual meeting series to foster scientific exchange and give our Young Investigators the opportunity to present their research. We are happy to announce that we will start this series in the US/Australian time zone on February 2 2021 5 PM (Orlando time) / February 3 2021 9 AM (Melbourne time).
The meeting will start with a keynote presentation, delivered by two excellent speakers from our community:
Dr. Cornelia Landersdorfer (Monash University, Australia) and Dr. Jürgen Bulitta (University of Florida, USA) will deliver a presentation entitled
‘Novel approaches to leverage molecules assays and disease-specific pharmacokinetics for translational antimicrobial pharmacology’.
After the keynote, there will be opportunities for Young Investigators to present their research.
The following Young Investigators will present their research:
|Xingchen Bian||Is withdrawal of polymyxin breakpoints by CLSI justified: A Chinese perspective on intravenous polymyxin B for the treatment of bloodstream infection caused by multidrug-resistant Gram-negative pathogens.|
|Akosua Adom Agyeman||Evaluation of meropenem and tobramycin combination dosage regimens against hypermutable Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains via the dynamic hollow fibre infection model and mechanism-based modelling.|
|Dr Nitin Patil||The Critical Role of Position 10 Residue in the Polymyxin Antimicrobial Activity|
|Yang Hu||Perturbations of gut microbiome in mice by polymyxin treatments|
Dial-in information will be sent before the meeting via the newsletter!
