Bringing together scientists, industry, agriculture, policy makers, regulators, stakeholders and other interested parties in the same physical location for intensive discussions is a key component of developing a systems approach to address and mitigate antimicrobial resistance.  The 4th ASM Conference on Antimicrobial Resistance in Zoonotic Bacteria and Foodborne Pathogens will continue and expand the excellent existing scientific agenda to include emphases on novel approaches to molecular typing, whole genome sequencing and its role in understanding the evolution and dissemination of AMR bacteria, host adaptation and specificity, metagenome-based studies of resistance, isolate-based versus sample-based inference, risk assessment, and computational biology and mathematical modeling.

Adding to previous meetings in this ASM series, we are including an additional 1.5 day session on systems approaches, ways to develop, implement, and measure success in mitigation strategies, and stakeholder-based policy development (from very local, to national and global) as it relates to antimicrobial uses and AMR bacteria, particularly of zoonotic and foodborne bacteria.  Much of the interest in, and funding of, scientific research in this area is driven by both implicit and explicit policy concerns, yet little time is given to rigorous discussion of key factors driving science policy in this area including moral, social, and economic conditions.
