I am very excited to hear about the FDA's new and ongoing activities to support good antimicrobial stewardship in human medicine and animal agricultural settings, and their support of antibiotic research and development. Should be an insightful panel discussion! Tune in TODAY! (https://www.pewtrusts.org/about/events/2018/fda-unveils-plan-to-combat-antibiotic-resistance) #FDAatPew
What a great day at the DATA-POWERED STRATEGIES TO COUNTERACT ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE #dataAMR18 conference hosted at the Harvard Medical School! There is so much exciting work being done to fight resistance from the development of paper-based diagnostics that can detect single-SNP variants, to high-throughput screens for novel antimicrobial compounds, to real-time genome-sequencing and resistance prediction. Development of these diverse arms of research, and complementary implementation of them in the future, will be critical to stemming the emergence and spread of resistance!
The Grad lab is back from our annual retreat, this time in Shrewsbury VT! Fresh air, a mountain hike, and discovering the "ice rocks" of the area was truly a spectacular experience. What a great group of people to be a part of. Now back to the lab!
