Combating Antimicrobial Resistance Through Student-Driven Research and Environmental Surveillance
The title says it all! New published in Frontiers in Microbiology, Combating Antimicrobial Resistance Through Student-Driven Research and Environmental Surveillance
with Carol Bascom-Slack and colleagues. Distributed college curriculum to survey environmental reservoir of antimicrobial resistance and teach science and one-health at the same time!!!!
Congrats to KP Smith and Tom McDonald for passing American Board of Medical and Public Health Microbiology Boards
100% pass rate for fellows in our Medical Microbiology Training Program (+/- postdoctoral research training) continues! Now ABMM diplomats!
Final Version of our AI Microbiology Review now in Clinical Microbiology and Infection
I really like our figures. 50 day open access to article:
"Removing Obstacles for Bringing AST for New Antimicrobials in the Clinical Laboratory", July 20, 2020, noon-1 p.m. and afterwards on-demand to all ASM members.
What a nice thing to make available to all ASM membership whether they had planned to attend ASM Microbe this summer or not.
