5 – 7 June 2024 | Marseille, France
The escalated and persistent resistance to antibiotics poses significant threat to the global public health, increasing the urgency to identify new potential antimicrobials, to dissect their molecular mechanism(s) of action, and to characterize their function in the context of complex immune responses. Antimicrobial peptides represent a class of antibiotic molecules that display targeted activity against microorganisms, which are produced by living organisms as diverse as bacteria, fungi, plants, insects and vertebrates, and which can be as well artificially designed and synthesized.
The 2024 International Symposium on Antimicrobial Peptides will reunite experts to engage in discussions regarding:
a) the discovery, biosynthesis pathways and bioengineering of novel antimicrobial peptides,
b) the mechanisms of antimicrobial activities and bacterial resistance,
c) immune modulation by antimicrobial peptides,
d) the interplay between antimicrobial peptides & microbiota, and
e) antimicrobial peptides as an ecological and evolutionary point of view.
Deadline for abstract submission is April 15, 2024.
Abstracts selected for poster presentation will be displayed during the poster sessions.
