RESISPART Symposium

Antimicrobial resistance: challenges and novel approaches inspired by oral research

Antimicrobial resistance has become one of the largest threats to human health. To face this problem, a better understanding of the sources and mechanisms of resistance is required. This symposium focuses on the contribution of oral research to recent advancements in the field, from the effect of antibiotics on the microbiome to discovery of resistance mechanisms and novel antimicrobial targets.
