The 2nd International Symposium on Antimicrobial Hydrolytic Enzymes (The Lysin Meeting) is the second conference of its kind since lysins were first explored as potential therapeutics and alternatives to antibiotics. It comes on the heels of a successful first meeting in 2016 with a combination of over 140 US and International participants. This intimate symposium will consist of leading scientists focused on the use of lysins in a variety of applications. Keynote speakers will include pioneers of novel approaches in their respective areas and session speakers will be selected from submitted abstracts. We expect that this symposium will be of interest to academic and corporate scientists in the growing field of lysins.
