263. Host/Microbe Metabolic Factors Shape Infectious Disease Pathogenesis
Saturday, October 29, 2016: 2:00 PM-3:30 PM
Room: 291-292

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • describe the role that the metabolic activity of the host and pathogen plays in the pathogenesis of bacterial infectious diseases
  • identify potential new preventative and therapeutic targets for bacterial infections that leverage specific metabolic pathways required for pathogenesis
  • discuss how a more complete understanding of critical metabolic pathways can increase our ability to relate basic metabolic functions to the development of bacterial infections
