Amber 1

Clinical microbiology highlights four key topics: interesting cases in infectious diseases, vaccine development, biosafety and educating the healthcare workforce in antimicrobial resistance and stewardship.

  • Educating Healthcare Workforce in Antimicrobial Resistance and Stewardship: Clinical microbiology educates healthcare professionals on responsible antibiotic use, preventing the spread of resistant pathogens, and optimizing antimicrobial selection. This education helps combat multidrug-resistant infections and preserves the effectiveness of antibiotics.
  • Vaccine development updates in SEA: Asia will prevent and control health outbreaks in a more scientific, precise and efficient way, and upgrade vaccines and develop new medicines to ensure enough supply for the public.
  • TB diagnostics: Facilitation and integration of proven innovations into large-scale and area-specificTB national programmes
  • Biosafety: Discussion on principles and practices in laboratories to reduce the health-related risks associated with handling infectious agent

Chair: Dr Nina G. Gloriani, Head of Vaccine Expert Panel, Department of Science and Technology; Former Dean of the College of Public Health, University of the Philippines Manila, Manila, Philippines 

Key topics:

  • Update in antimicrobial resistance
  • Laboratory automation in microbial diagnosis
  • Virology - drug resistance in clinically important virus
  • Epidemiology
