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:
