KP Smith Speaking tomorrow at Harvard Antimicrobial Resistance Laboratory Network as well as Broad Institute collaborator, Alejandro Pironti
KP Smith wins an "Outstanding Abstract Award" otherwise known as the OAA, for his experimental work on the inoculum effect.
The award description on the ASM Microbe 2018 awards website: "Sponsored by ASM and determined by the ASM Microbe Program Committee, these awards highlight outstanding abstracts presented by students, residents, or medical/clinical fellows. All abstracts submitted by the deadline will be considered for these awards. Awards will include a cash prize of $200."
Thea, KP, Anthony and I will be attending and presenting posters at the 2017 Boston Area Antimicrobial Network Meeting at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences Center. We are looking forward to participating.
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 am looking forward to giving a podium and poster presentation at the ASM Conference on Antibacterial Development. I will be discussing our efforts to accelerated antimicrobial susceptibility testing diagnostics. More rapid and flexible AST diagnostics are critical for clinical introduction and for directing appropriate use of new antimicrobials under development.
LRIG stands for laboratory robotics interest group. My talk was titled: "How inkjet printing technology can defeat multidrug-resistant superbugs." In addition to a number of platform presentations, the meeting featured a large exhibit hall with various types of research laboratory automation on display.
