WORKSHOP FAPESP–BBSRC Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and Insect Pest Resistance in Agriculture

The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) within the scope of the Newton Fund, invite you to the

WORKSHOP FAPESP–BBSRC
Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and Insect Pest Resistance in Agriculture

October 5-6, 2017 – 8h30 a.m to 5h00 p.m – FAPESP

The purpose of the partnering workshop is to bring together the relevant funding agencies FAPESP and BBSRC, key research organisations and leading academics from São Paulo and the UK to discuss anti microbial and pest resistance in agricultural research initiative.
