An arena to get inspired and connect

As a global hub for science and technology, the Swedish city of Uppsala is the ideal location for a forum on AMR research. Home to two universities, medical & veterinary research institutions, as well as several big players from the industry, Uppsala provides the ideal environment for creativity and innovation. We are pleased to host the first Uppsala Antibiotic Days, creating a new space to contribute to the dialogue around AMR. The conference aims to bring together researchers, clinicians, students, and the community at large to present their breakthroughs and experiences with AMR.

Conference topics

Organized by thematic sessions, the Uppsala Antibiotic Days will host talks on:

The clinical reality of AMR

Drug-resistant infections currently threaten modern medicine and infection treatment. In this session we will explore the clinical reality of AMR in both high-income and low and middle-income settings.

Drug discovery

After the golden era of antibiotics, we have been facing a dry pipeline for decades. Here we will examine what is the current situation of the discovery of new antimicrobial drugs.

Social sciences and education

With behaviour and human action as key aspects of AMR, we will talk in this session about how research on social sciences and education are part of the solution.


To ensure proper and timely antimicrobial treatment rapid and affordable diagnostics are needed. Here we will explore the latest research and innovation in this area.

Animals and the environment

Looking at AMR from a One Health perspective, the role of veterinary medicine, animal husbandry and the environment will be the key focus of this session.


In a world where antimicrobials are no longer profitable for the pharmaceutical industry, a change in the economic paradigm is needed. Here we will look into current trends and solutions to this problem.
