International Antibiotic CellMAP Symposium in Bensberg 4.-6. October 2021

TRR-members and TRR-guests enjoyed to meet in person in the Kardinal-Schulte-Haus in Bensberg, Bergisch Gladbach.  Over eighty participants at the conference venue and over thirty online-participants met to discuss recent results, ongoing work and future ideas, all with a focus on antibiotic activities in target cells and biosynthesis processes in producer strains. Excellent international speakers joined our first International Antibiotic CellMAP Symposium: MAX J. CRYLE - Monash University, PIETER C. DORRESTEIN - University of California, ALESSANDRA S. EUSTAQUIO - University of Illinoi, KIM LEWIS - Northeastern University College of Science, SCOT P. OUELLETTE - University of Nebraska, MARIANA G. PINHO - Universidade NOVA de Lisbon.

We take this opportunity to again thank the invited speakers for accepting our invitation to the International Antibiotic CellMAP Symposium. We enjoyed your great stimulating talks a lot and are looking forward to ongoing productive collaborations!

Also, TRR-PIs and TRR-PhD-students presented their projects and filled every symposium day with great results, research ideas and fruitful discussion. Thank you very much for your active participation. We particularly thank our PhD students for inspiring posters! We see a promising new generation of antibiotic researchers emerge!

New groups from the University of Tübingen and University of Bonn also participated to present their research focus. Thank you for your outstanding presentations and sharing your inspiring new topics and ideas. We are looking forward to working with you! 

Finally, we would like to thank organizers, all chairpersons and coordinators for their excellent support!
