Scientific meeting on azole resistanse

The ResAzoleNet project, which is lead by the Norwegian Veterinary Institute, organizes a scientific meeting on azole resistance 22nd January 2019 in Oslo, Norway.

Fungal infections caused by opportunistic fungi such as Aspergillus fumigatus kill more than 1 million people annually worldwide (equivalent to deaths caused by tuberculosis or malaria).

The number will likely increase considerably because medical treatment becomes less effective as the fungus develops resistance to the commonly used antifungal compounds containing azoles.

Fungal infections that are resistant to antifungal treatment are an emerging public health problem, requiring immediate action. The global community has a strong focus on antimicrobial resistance (AMR), but almost solely on antibacterial resistance.

The ResAzoleNet project, which is lead by the Norwegian Veterinary Institute, organizes a scientific meeting on azole resistance 22nd January 2019 in Oslo, Norway.

The scope of the meeting is to get an overview of the current situation and discuss how we can prevent the rapid spread of azole resistance globally.

We are proud to announce that speakers are some of the world’s leading experts in the area of azole resistance.
