The abstract proposal deadline for Antimicrobial Drug Discovery from Traditional and Historical Medicine 2019 has been extended

12 August 2019

The abstract submission deadline for the Antimicrobial Drug Discovery from Traditional and Historical Medicine Focused Meeting has been extended to Monday 26 August 2019.

Submit your abstract proposal here for your chance to present at this event.

The Antimicrobial Drug Discovery from Traditional and Historical Medicine 2019 will take place on 29 October 2019 at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, UK.

This is a pilot meeting, which unlike other Focused Meetings, will not comprise of traditional research presentations but a mix of five-minute introductory flash talks and structured round-table discussions to facilitate networking, collaboration, knowledge exchange and capacity building.

The main barrier to the successful exploitation of the natural compounds database, represented by traditional European medicine, is the lack a cohesive network for researchers. The aim of this meeting is to bring together researchers from a range of fields including microbiology, chemistry, botany and the history of medicine to define areas for collaboration, methods development and translational research.

When submitting an abstract proposal, please outline the following:

  • Your area of expertise.
  • Future goals and what you are currently missing in your network.
  • Your reasons for attending the meeting (this may include access to industrial links, general awareness of the topic of opportunities for academic collaboration, for example).

Submit your abstract proposal by Monday 26 August.

Register your place at the meeting.
