Bacteriophage Therapy Summit 2020 by Microbiome Movement
The 2nd edition of the Bacteriophage Therapy Summit will be held as a Digital event on Thursday 27th August and Friday 28th August 2020.
What is the Bacteriophage Therapy Summit and Why attend?
The use of bacteriophages in a diversity of fields is a topic that has been raised and looked at by many in the last few years. One of the major factors for this is to find a solution to the rapid increase of antibiotic resistance. In order to develop a concrete solution to the current situation, the regulatory system must be set accordingly and treatments showing efficacy must be produced.
The Bacteriophage Therapy Summit brings together individuals from a diversity of fields, for 2 days in order to explore the current development state and to help identify the possibilities for tomorrow.
Who will be at the Bacteriophage Therapy Summit?
Over 20 speakers and more than 65 companies will be attending.
The summit will bring together individuals in positions and occupations of; Chief/Cxo, President/VP, Directors, Managers, Scientists and Professors. Those who work in a diversity of fields such as; large pharma, biotech, academia and treatment centres.
