Welcome to Targeting Phage 2018

It is an honour to host the 5th World Congress on Targeting Infectious Diseases: Targeting Phage &  Antibiotic Resistance 2018  which will be held on May 17-18, 2018 in Florence, Italy, the town of Francesco Redi, Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo Galilei. Francesco Redi was the first scientist who adversed the “Spontaneous generation theory” showing with brilliant experiments the inconsistence of that theory which Louis Pasteur disproved with new techniques in 19th century. Leonardo was a multiform mind curious of the structure of “Nature” and tried to answer to many fundamental questions not yet formalizing the scientific method that Galilei stated not much later once for all.
