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.
I will be giving a podium presentation on the lab's advanced antimicrobial susceptibility testing research efforts at SLAS 2017
