College of Pharmacy Poster Day

Antibiotic Resistance: What Can Clinicians Do?

Keynote speaker: Miriam Barlow, PhD
Associate Professor at University of California, Merced

Thursday, March 7, 2018

Presentation: "Predicting the Evolution of Antibiotic Resistance"
12:30 - 1:30 pm Lander Auditorium

Poster Presentations:
1:30 - 4:00 Lander Hall Gym

Come learn about the impact of antibiotic resistance on a myriad of disease states and what pharmacological or clinical strategies could be used to mitigate this impact!

Forty posters presented by 1st and 2nd year College of Pharmacy students, each dealing with a different aspect of antibiotic resistance and potential ways to minimize the acquisition and spread of resistance in microbial populations.

Coffee and cookies provided.
