53rd ICAAC: Media registration now open

News media registration for the annual infectious diseases meeting of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) is now open. The 53rd Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) will be held September 10-13, 2013 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.

Known as the preeminent world meeting for presenting new information on clinical and basic research in infectious diseases and anti-infective therapy, ICAAC has also traditionally served as a forum for the introduction of new antimicrobial agents. It is the largest infectious disease meeting held in the United States.

The opening keynote session will focus on the future of antibiotic therapy, urging infectious disease professionals to rethink the "one diseaseone pathogenone drug," paradigm currently used to treat disease in favor of more multifaceted and integrated therapeutic interventions aimed at restoring the health of all sick compartments involved in infection.

This year's meeting will also feature a special address by Trevor Mundel of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation who will speak on the importance of innovation to address infectious diseases in the developing world. Dr. Mundel will address current vaccine discovery programs, strategies for the future, neglected diseases and plans for accelerating research and development efforts for low resource settings through new partnerships and programs.

The ASM Office of Communications will host a full-service press room with Internet access, telephones, computers, photocopy and fax machines, and refreshments. Streaming audio and video of daily press conferences will be available over the Internet for reporters covering from a distance. Programs and abstracts, as well as an embargoed online press kit featuring tipsheets, lay-summaries of selected presentations and the press conference schedule will be available in advance of the meeting.
