Verification of an automated, digital dispensing platform for at-will broth microdilution antimicrobial susceptibility testing
Postdoctoral Fellow, KP Smith, describes the use of inkjet printing technology to perform antimicrobial susceptibility testing of any antimicrobial at will. Importantly, the method is extremely simple, requiring one human pipetting step per antimicrobial, and is just as accurate and more precise than the reference gold standard broth microdilution method. The findings were reported in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology.
To postdoctoral fellow, KP Smith, on acceptance of his manuscript to Journal of Clinical Microbiology and research associate, Lucius Chiaraviglio, and post doctoral fellow, Yoon-Suk Kang, for acceptance of their manuscript to Journal of Visualized Experiments.
Attending Research Mentor Training Workshops for Microbiologists at ASM Microbe Meeting
Enjoying small group discussion among faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students. Worked through a series of mentorship case scenarios. National Mentoring Research Network - a great resource!
