Ep X2. Young researchers at the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases.

2019-05-16

Welcome to another live episode at The AMR Studio! This time we are coming to you live from ECCMID2019, the annual European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases. We had the pleasure to interview 5 young researchers coming from around the globe (Australia, Norway, Spain, France & the USA) about their current projects and work. Listen to this episode to learn more antibiotic resistance transmission in cystic fibrosis patients; the characteristics of Mycobacterium abscessus; virulence in Acinetobacter baumannii; the user perception of antibiotic resistance; and rapid identification/antimicrobial susceptibility testing.
