Pushing industry collaboration to facilitate the Global Action Plan on antimicrobial resistance at SMi's 20th annual global event: Superbugs & Superdrugs 2018. Includes exclusive keynote from the MHRA

Providing a focal point to push industry collaboration through updates on clinical advancements and investment opportunities, SMi presents the established 20th annual Superbugs & Superdrugs conference which will return to Central London on 19th and 20th March 2018.

The threat of AMR is regularly making front page news but what is the industry actually doing? Are drug manufacturers any closer to finding a solution and how is the government helping? These will be just some of the questions answered through powerful keynote addresses delivered by an expert panel of scientific leaders, drug discovery specialists and government bodies such as MHRA and DNDi.
