2nd Summer School on
ANTIMICROBIAL AND BIOCIDE RESISTANCE

22nd - 26th July 2024

  

OBJECTIVES

The 2nd Summer School on Antimicrobial and Biocide Resistance is a co-organization between GHTMInstituto de Higiene e Medicina Tropical (IHMT-NOVA) and Freie Universität Berlin (FUB), aiming at providing updated information on:

01

Antimicrobial resistance in a One Health perspective

Mechanisms of bacterial resistance to antimicrobials and biocides

02

03

AMR transfer and dissemination

04

Efflux-mediated resistance

Topics for pratical lessons:

01

Methodologies for evaluation of antimicrobial susceptibility

02

Estimation of epidemiological cut-off (ECOFF) values to predict decreased susceptibility to biocides

03

Isolation of genomic DNA for long-read sequencing

04

Prediction of AMR by whole-genome sequencing data analysis

The 2nd Summer School on Antimicrobial Resistance is powered by:

Bilateral PT Germany (FCT/DAAD) mobility project 2022.15300.CBM
