Dr. Quave to attend AdCab course

Dr. Quave is one of forty junior scientists selected to participate in the inaugural Advanced Course on Antibiotics (AdCab), hosted by the  Fondation Merieux and Institut Pasteur. The course will be held in Annecy, France in October 2016.

Here is a description of the course from the Foundation website:

“The increasing occurrence of resistance to antibiotics and the emergence and spread of bacteria resistant to all drug classes seriously threaten all branches of modern medicine. There is currently no course providing advanced instruction on antibiotic discovery, development, and rational use.

The specific goal of this course is to bring leaders and innovators in academics and industry together with highly trained scientists. to sharing cutting-edge approaches and technologies for determination of antibacterial activity, detection of potential resistance mechanisms, antibiotic discovery, chemical optimization and usage that maximizes their utility and minimizes the development of resistance, including exploring public health, social, economic, political and ethical issues of antibiotic resistance.”
