You are cordially invited to attend the symposium “Molecular basis of antibiotic permeability in Gram-negative bacteria: Solving a new question within a private-public partnership” that will take place on 21-23.06.2017 in Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research, Braunschweig, Germany.
Please see the current version of the program here and join us by registering here.

The raise of antimicrobial resistance urges the development of novel approaches to bring antibiotics into bacteria. This workshop will provide an interdisciplinary overview of EU-funded research in this field. The following topics will be covered:

  • Introduction
  • Whole-cell assays
  • Characterization of the bacterial cell wall
  • Porins as possible pathways to enter the cell
  • Identificationof specific uptake systems
  • Flux analysis
  • Characterization of efflux pumps, high-resolution structures, all atom modeling and functional assays as well as adjuvants acting as potential permeabilizers
  • Search for new molecules and strategies

Organized by: Translocation (ITN & IMI)


Translocation receives funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under the grant agreement IMI115525, and from the EFPIA companies.
