I Asturias International Meeting
on Clinical Microbiology and
Infectious Disease

Oviedo, SPAIN | 24-25 September 2020

Clinical microbiology and infectious diseases are specialties in constant expansion and, while great inroads are being made, the challenges remain complex in these fields. Multidrug resistant bacteria (including tuberculosis) are spreading worldwide, making it difficult to treat the infections they cause and posing a very real threat to healthcare systems and public health. New antimicrobials are in the pipeline, but experience with them is as yet insufficient. Likewise, new technology-based diagnostic tools are continuously being developed. Diagnostic and antimicrobial stewardship programs are essential both in hospitals and in the community to optimize diagnosis and treatment with new antimicrobials, as well as with older drugs. Among these refractory infections, sexually transmitted diseases are once again on the rise, due to emerging pathogens and resistances. Other new diseases are also of concern, such as those caused by tropical viruses (Ebola, Chikungunya…) and fungi, (Candida auris) as well as other viruses and molds affecting immunocompromised patients whose numbers are escalating across the globe. Research in microbiology is currently in the spotlight of science. One example of such are studies into microbiome that are able to answer previously open questions. Furthermore, technologies such as next generation sequencing or genome editing using CRISPR-Cas9 are promising in clinical microbiology, albeit their applicability are far from easy. 

 

We therefore believe that knowledge and research sharing about compelling issues and new trends in clinical microbiology and infectious disease is essential. This is why we are organizing the First Asturias International Meeting of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (AIMID) in Oviedo, at the capital city of Asturias, a small region located on the northern coast of Spain.

 

We are happy to welcome you to the Meeting and to Oviedo, and we hope you enjoy the event, as well as the city.

We are worried about the coronavirus situation, but we are sure that clinical microbiology and infectious diseases teams working together with other specialitis from health care systems worldwide will face and sucesfully overcome the problem!💪💪 #COVID19espana #COVID19

We are glad to announce another AIMID 2020 Invited Speaker: Patricia Poeta, Professor at the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro and member of the ESGVM Executive Committee of ESCMID. She will talk about the role of antimicrobial resistance in veterinary #OneHealth

We are glad to introduce another AIMID 2020 invited speaker:Fabio Tumietto, from the Division of Infectious Diseases of University of Bologna, Italy. He will talk about "Fast microbiology supporting infection control programmes: rationale and evidence" #InfectionControl
