Our Gram stain artificial intelligence platform was selected as a competitor in the 2018 Stat Madness Competition.
Work from our laboratory was selected as a competitor in the 2018 Stat Madness Competition. This bracket style national competition will allow voters to choose among important medical innovations developed at selected medical centers and universities across the United States. Our artificial intelligence-based-platform named Technologist Assist allows automatic imaging and interpretation of Gram stain results and ultimately will provide assisted laboratory diagnostic capabilities at near or remote sites.
Please vote for our work at the Stat Madness website: www.statnews.com/feature/stat-madness/bracket/
We officially moved the lab today. Not very far. Just to other side of the floor. Doubled our bench space! We are all very excited!

Image from lab meeting! Spinning disk confocal microscope image of B. neotomae and J744A.1 macrophages
Spinning disc confocal microscopy image acquired by Lucius Chiaraviglio and presented at Lab Meeting this past Friday. A single multiply infected macrophage is shown. Red objects are individual Brucella neotomae bacteria. Green immunofluorescent staining lables LAMP-1, a marker of late endosomes and lysosomes. Brucella traffics to LAMP-1 compartments early during infection.
on Drug Development to Meet the Challenge of Antimicrobial Resistance, September 6-8, 2017. Posters were on apramycin, inkjet printer-based susceptibility testing methodology, and MAST rapid susceptibility technology, respectively.
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..
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'.
