We are excited to announce BARNARDS was successful in having a number of abstracts for posters and presentations accepted for the 29th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases, with our lead scientist Maria De Carvalho winning the ISF/ESCMID Sepsis award in recognition of an exceptional abstract.
The European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases is the annual meeting of ESCMID, the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases.
Attendance and presentation at this event allowed BARNARDS team members to present on BARNARDS with some first early findings. We had the opportunity of sharing this information with friends, peers, clinicians and colleagues, contributing to the knowledge base of neonatal sepsis and antimicrobial resistance in low-middle income countries to reduce neonatal mortality.
The list of BARNARDS posters and presentations at ECCMID are listed as follows:
- 2019 ISF/ESCMID Sepsis award winner – Maria De Carvalho “Insights into the normal microbiota of mothers, infants and clinical environment and genomes of bacterial isolates causing sepsis in infants from low- and middle-income countries”
- Kirsty Sands “Whole genome characterisation of bacterial isolates causing sepsis in infants in low-middle income countries”
- Rebecca Milton “Incidence of neonatal sepsis from hospitals in South Asia and Africa: Burden of Antibiotic Resistance in Neonates from Developing Societies (BARNARDS)”
