In “From Theory to Practice with Faster Diagnostics: It Takes a Team,” Ravina Kullar, PharmD, MPH, FIDSA, will review the burden of antimicrobial resistance and the importance of early targeted antimicrobial therapy.
Frederick Novy served an extensive career pioneering the development of microbiology as an academic discipline and field of research, and he assisted in setting the framework for modern medical science.
Each year, doctors in the U.S. perform more than 4 billion diagnostic tests, which have become more sophisticated and easier to execute as technology has improved. However, research has found that many physicians assume tests are more accurate than they are.
Antimicrobial resistance is a continually growing threat, a threat that requires a team of minds working towards one common goal. bioMérieux has created a new webinar series to bring together laboratorians and clinicians to share best practices for optimizing diagnostic data and technology with the goal of preserving antibiotics for future generations.
