Thea received an ASM Infectious Disease Travel Award and KP Smith an ASM Postdoctoral Travel Award. Both prestigious ASM Travel Awards are based on abstract submissions to the 2017 ASM MIcrobe Meeting in New Orleans. Jennifer Tsang will be joining the crew with an abstract acceptance on her high throughput screening work..
We are competing in the STAT Madness competition for Innovations in Biomedical Science. Please vote for us!!!!
Here is the link to to the STAT Madness competition: www.statnews.com/feature/stat-madness/bracket/. Please vote for BIDMC in the line up. Our research on discovery of antimicrobials targeting carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae is highlighted. See "Validation of a High-Throughput Screening Assay for Identification of Adjunctive and Directly Acting Antimicrobials Targeting Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae" published in Assay and Drug Development Technologies and accompanying editorial for more information."
I was selected as a SLAS 2017 Innovation Award Finalist and will be speaking at the SLAS Annual Meeting with a presentation titled: "Inkjet Printing Technology for Facilitated At Will Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (FAST) in Under 5 Hours: Addressing the Needs of a So-Called 'Post-Antibiotic Era'.
