September 28 - October 1, 1997


The Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC), an annual meeting of American Society for Microbiology held in the early fall, is an interdisciplinary forum of international renown. ICAAC programs encourage the exchange of information among researchers and clinicians interested in antimicrobial and anticancer drugs and infectious diseases. Sessions are often developed in cooperation with other societies, domestic and international.

In addition to its scientific symposia, the conference includes special lectures, slide sessions and late-breaker slide sessions, poster presentations, state-of-the-art minilectures, meet-the-experts sessions, and interactive sessions that enable audience participation.

The American Society for Microbiology is the oldest and largest single life science membership organization in the world. The Society represents 24 disciplines of microbiological specialization plus a division for microbiology educators.

The following selected conference summaries are reported exclusively for The Body by Andrew T. Pavia, M.D., Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Medicine at the University of Utah School of Medicine, and Director of Clinical Research for the University Health Sciences AIDS Center.

Funding for this conference coverage at The Body is provided, in part, through an unrestricted educational grant by Bristol-Myers Squibb Immunology.
