5th World Congress on Targeting Infectious Diseases
Targeting Antibiotic Resistance
From phage therepy to innovative Ideas
October 2-3, 2017 Florence, Italy
It is an honour to host the 5th World Congress on Targeting Infectious Diseases: Targeting Antibiotic Resistance 2017 which will be held on October 2-3, 2017 in Florence, Italy, the town of Francesco Redi, Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo Galilei. Francesco Redi was the first scientist who adversed the “Spontaneous generation theory” showing with brilliant experiments the inconsistence of that theory which Louis Pasteur disproved with new techniques in 19th century. Leonardo was a multiform mind curious of the structure of “Nature” and tried to answer to many fundamental questions not yet formalizing the scientific method that Galilei stated not much later once for all.
The interest on new methods and strategies in the struggle against infectious diseases had a strong advancement taking advantage of innovative technics and new strategies with the outcome of emergent bio-tech research. Application of these new tools not always was without azardous consequences and even more dangerous are the unknown consequences or under estimated risks. The aim of Targeting Antibiotic Resistance 2017 is to suggest the new possible applications that can avoid negative consequences considering the past experience.
