DescriptionThis symposium will bring together individuals who focus on anti-pathogen therapies directed at host mechanisms in an effort to limit the emergence of drug resistance and develop new strategies for treatment of infectious diseases. It will highlight this therapeutic approach from conception of new therapies to their application.

Key Sessions

• Host directed therapies for bacterial infection
• Host directed therapies for viral infection
• Host directed therapies for other infections
• Identification of cellular targets for host directed therapies
• Methods to identify new host directed therapies
• Emergence of drug resistance with host directed therapies and future work

Learning Objectives

• To inform the audience about related host directed therapeutic approaches

To outline the development of host directed therapeutics from identification of target/compound to • formulation to application in relevant infectious models.

Target Audience

The target audience will be multidisciplinary and include medical doctors, scientists and engineers studying microbiology, immunology, chemistry, and applied sciences related to treatment of infectious diseases. As this is a new therapeutic strategy, relatively few companies are involved in production of host directed therapy, so a majority of the audience is anticipated to be academic or from governmental agencies.
