Listed are free-wheeling thoughts, crazy at best and utopian at worst
- Imagine a scenario where drug evolves naturally keeping pace with development of resistance in microorganisms. This technology could be called as WTG4T
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest global health crises that the world is facing today. The growing threat of AMR is as real as it gets. The vision of our Symposium is to brainstorm and define the challenges and opportunities and develop strategies to combat this global pandemic in the making.
Scientific Knowledge and Spiritual Wisdom are like two streams. If we merge these two streams we will find that we are able to create a mighty river, a river whose waters can remove suffering and facilitate the holistic growth of society.
When experts and force fielders of AMR likeDr. Janani Venkataraman (Biomoneta), Dr. Balganesh (GangaGen), Dr. Bala Subramanian (Bugworks), Dr. Shridhar Narayanan (FNDR), Dr. Sachin Dubey (Module Innovations), Dr. Taslimarif (C-CAMP), Dr. Geetha Kumar (Amrita School of Biotechnology), Dr. Jayanta Haldar (Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research), and Dr. Nitesh Jangir (Coeo Labs) unite, how can you miss it? Attend the power-packed and adrenaline filled 2.5-hour session that highlights the AMR innovation work being done by the best companies in India, in the fields of drug discovery, diagnostics, and devices. We assure you that this session will be an extraordinary one.
This panel session with high-power speakers from India and abroad, will look at all the elements that would need to come together, for India to get a good handle over the AMR situation and for us to have a bright future in this context. What are some of the key initiatives that our country need to drive in an accelerated mode, in order for us to bring this slow moving pandemic under control, will be explored during this session. The session will be Moderated by Dr. Anand Anandkumar and the Panel Members would be Dr. Shrikumar Suryanarayan,
Dr. Manica Balasegaram, Dr. Chandru Chawla, Dr. Y K Gupta,
Dr. Shirshendu Mukherjee, Dr. Sanjeev Singh. Dr. Bipin Nair would be delivering the Closing Remarks

Information is vital in a battle. It helps to gauge an adversary, detect chinks in its armor, and predict its moves and when it’s ready…launch a raid. It’s no different with the menace of AMR either, information on predisposing factors, drivers of resistance, the magnitude of the problem, progression, and countermeasures could be a game-changer.
They called it ‘magic bullets’, antibiotics did serve their (human’s) hubris well, drove us (microbes) to the cliff until extinction was imminent. Millions and millions and millions succumbed to this orgy of violence. Their arsenal had the firepower disproportionate to our virulence; every Tom, Dick, and Harry fired at us
As an initiative to increase awareness on global Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), as well as to encourage best practices among the general public, and health workers to stop the further emergence and spread of drug-resistant infections, *WHO has declared November 18-24 as the Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW).
