ASM Conference on Antimicrobial Resistance in Zoonotic Bacteria and Foodborne Pathogens

sponsored in collaboration with:

The Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS), The Technical University of Denmark (DTU), and The University of Guelph

June 15 - 18, 2008 | Copenhagen, Denmark

Conference Scope

The focus of the conference will be on antimicrobial resistance and transmission of antimicrobial resistant bacteria via the food chain and other human-animals interactions. The meeting will provide numerous opportunities to interact and exchange knowledge, in this growing research area, between scientists as well as international policy and regulatory decision makers. 

Scientific Sessions

  • Monitoring of resistance
  • Diagnostic methods (susceptibility testing, rapid diagnostics and genetic methods)
  • Mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance
  • Resistance in bacteria of the food chain (Salmonella, Campylobacter, E.coli, Vancomycin resistant enterococci (VRE) and others)
  • Methicillin resistant Staph. Aureus (MRSA)
  • Epidemiology of resistance in the food production chain
  • Strategies to control and prevent resistance in the food chain
  • Late breaker session
