ISAP symposium

International Society for Anti-Infective Pharmacology (ISAP)

This year’s ISAP post ICAAC Symposium will take place on Wednesday, September 12th, 2-6 pm.

Location: San Francisco, Fort Mason Center, Marina Blvd & Buchanan St, Golden Gate Room

As in previous years, the symposium has two segments:

1. Main topic: Jason Roberts: Translational aspects of PK/PD tools for personalized dosing in the ICU. The presentation is followed by some prepared comments regarding online PK/PD tools to support dosing decisions as well as a lively discussion.

2. Forum for Young Investigators: Brief presentations on PK/PD topics related to old and new anti-infectives.
Young Investigators – this is an unique opportunity for insightful and motivating feedback regarding your research!

During the ICAAC, ISAP organizes four workshops as well as several symposia dedicated to PK/PD.
