MBI is pleased to be hosting a lively and interactive science discussion entitled Vexing Prolems - Novel Approaches

Bright light globe


We invite everyone with an interest in infectious diseases to bring your big questions or big solutions related to the topics discussed - reflecting on key research initiatives that can move the field forward.

The morning session will focus on discussion around “Antimicrobial Resistance” and the afternoon session on “emerging infectious diseases hotspots”.

Short informal introductions will provide a brief overview of the field, emphasize recent advances and focus specifically on key challenges related to the topics discussed. This will be followed by open discussion and constructive debate from the floor, facilitated by the moderator.


Attendees are invited to attend either or both sessions.
