Join Dr. Henrik Westh, Clinical Microbiologist for a live webinar on his work to contain the spread of super bugs. With global outbreaks becoming more common, Dr. Westh and his lab are leveraging the power of NGS platforms to understand the evolution and spread of antimicrobial-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, specifically methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) – one of the most aggressive super bugs. Dr. Westh is working to help stop these ruthless super bugs from causing millions of illnesses and deaths worldwide.
