WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE ORGANISING COMMITTEE



Professor Dr. Sazaly Abu Bakar,
Chairman of the Organising Committee,
Tropical Infectious Diseases Research and Education Centre,
Department of Medical Microbiology,
Faculty of Medicine,
University Malaya.

I would like to welcome all speakers and delegates to the Tropical Infectious Diseases Research and Education Centre, in University Malaya, for the UK-Malaysia Symposium on Current Strategies in Antimicrobial Therapies. The challenge of antimicrobial resistance continues to grow relentlessly. Organisms continue to develop resistance to old and new antimicrobials at remarkable rates; and the nature of international travel means that local problems quickly become global issues. The medical and scientific community must therefore be as innovative as the organisms themselves. It is therefore appropriate that we have brought together academics from the UK and Malaysia to share their knowledge and meet with Malaysians from academia and industry to discuss novel approaches to combat resistance. I hope that all who attend will gain knowledge and forge new and rewarding links, in the attractive setting of University Malaya.
