Antibiotic Drug Discovery Webinar – December 13th
New Strategies in Antibiotic Drug Development With Cheryl Quinn and AJ Campbell
Moderated by Thale Jarvis with Introductions by Wes Kim
December 13, 2018 • 9:00AM (PT), 12:00 (ET), 17:00 (GMT)
Please join us for a forward-leaning discussion with SPARK Discovery Experts, Dr. Arthur “AJ” Campbell & Dr. Cheryl Quinn.
This talk is hosted by CDD, in conjunction with Pew Trusts and moderated by Keystone Symposia CSO Dr. Thale Jarvis with an introduction from Dr. Wes Kim, Senior Officer of Pew Trust's Antibiotic Resistance Project.
The discussion will be highly informed with a focus on:
- How we can move the needle in the challenging antibacterial drug discovery arena.
- Further our understanding of the compound types that penetrate the various compartments of Gram-Negative Bacteria via various mechanisms and equilibrium processes; and
- Explore the broader business and scientific considerations that influence successfully navigating novel antibiotics development.
