7th Symposium on Antimicrobial
Peptides AMP 2021
Paris, May 26-28, 2021
The continuous and ever increasing resistance to antibiotics represents a major challenge to global public health. In this context, there is an urgent need to identify novel potential antimicrobials, to dissect their molecular mechanism(s) of action, and to characterize their function in the context of complex immune responses. Antimicrobial peptides represent a class of antibiotic molecules that display targeted activity against microorganisms, which are produced by living organisms as diverse as bacteria, fungi, plants, insects and vertebrates, and which can be as well artificially designed and synthesized.
The 7th International Symposium on Antimicrobial Peptides (AMP2021) intends to gather for the first time at Institut Pasteur a group of more than 250 researchers from more than 30 countries, who have met previously in Nantes (2006), Saint-Malo (2009), Lille (2012), Lorient (2014), Montpellier (2016) or Poitiers (2018), and who represent all the major research axes approaching the chemistry, biology (structures and functions), ecology and evolution of antimicrobial peptides.
AMP2021 will bring together the world’s leading experts in the field to discuss the most recent research advances on: a) the discovery, biosynthesis pathways and bioengineering of novel antimicrobial peptides, b) the mechanisms of antimicrobial activities and bacterial resistance, c) immune modulation by antimicrobial peptides, d) the interplay between antimicrobial peptides & microbiota, and e) antimicrobial peptides in the One Health context and applications. The 7th International Symposium on Antimicrobial Peptides is supported by the French Society on Antimicrobial Peptides (SF-PAM) and by the National Museum of Natural History which will participate to the organization and social activities of the Symposium.
