(August 31, 2020) – Last month, NIAMRRE hosted the first event in the 2020-2021 Knowledge Exchange: a virtual poster session featuring research from NIAMRRE member institutions.
Posters were displayed electronically from July 27- 31. On July 30 and 31, NIAMRRE hosted four virtual poster sessions where presenters described their work and answered audience questions.
Posters were divided into four categories:
- Section One: Systems approaches to manage antimicrobial resistance
- Section Two: Reducing antimicrobial use by adapting precision agriculture approaches
- Section Three: Promoting antimicrobial stewardship through integrated public outreach, extension, and clinical training of health professionals
- Section Four: Improving treatment, clinical decision making, and diagnostics related to antimicrobial resistance
Participants represented six academic institutions. Graduate student winners included:
- Session One: Kris Hayman, Iowa State University
- Session Two: Rohan Bhargava, University of Florida
- Session Three: Jennifer Halleran, North Carolina State University
- Session Four: Autumn Dove, University of Florida
Dove was the overall winner for the poster contest; Hayman and Halleran tied for first runner up.
The NIAMRRE Knowledge Exchange is a year-long series of virtual events intended to spark collaboration, discovery, and innovation in human, animal, and environmental antimicrobial resistance research and education. NIAMRRE established the Knowledge Exchange in response to the global pandemic as a way to replicate the knowledge transfer and connections made at an in-person annual meeting. Additional events in the NIAMRRE Knowledge Exchange will be announced this fall and will continue until it is safe to gather again.
