A very warm, and belated welcome to Jessica Wallace, who joined the lab earlier this year and has since been working really hard and taking great care of the lab activities during the pandemic. Thanks for your great work and your adaptability during these trying times!!
There’s a new paper published at EMPH! We use a clinical case and the difficulties faced in terms of drug resistance evolution. We then aim at putting forward potential critical points to consider during the clinical decision making about antibiotic resistance in an ecological and evolutionary context!
A new paper in collaboration with the awesome Elsa Hansen, Jason Karslake, Andrew Read and Kevin Wood! Check it our here: https://journals.plos.org/plosbiology/article?id=10.1371/journal.pbio.3000713
A new preprint is not available at the medRxiv with Rishi Chanderraj and Bob! The gut microbiome predicts Enterococcus expansion but not the acquisition of vamcomycin resistance! Check it out here: http://medrxiv.org/content/early/2020/05/28/2020.05.26.20114181.abstract
Kevin has successfully defended his prelims and is now a PhD candidate! Terrific job Kevin!
In the midst of this pandemic, the Woods lab keeps receiving happy news! Masters student Meghan Linder is one of three students to win the 2020 Hunein F. Maassab Award for Excellence in Molecular Epidemiology from the MPH program at UMICH! Congratulations Meghan!
We are pleased to announce that Camilo has been awarded the JMS award from ESEB. Congratulations!
Kenetta has been awarded the College of Science Dean’s Graduate Award from the University of Idaho, and the Diane Haynes Memorial Award! Congratulations!
We are adopting the health plan put forward by Richard Lenski and his group, as we strongly believe that the points and measures exposed there are relevant for any research lab. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, thanks @RELenski. https://telliamedrevisited.wordpress.com/2020/02/29/the-lenski-lab-health-plan-for-the-new-coronavirus-outbreak/
We had a fantastic time bowling today! Thanks to the ID division for organizing!
