ASM Microbe 2016: In Your Own Words

Posted by:
See what meeting attendees have to say about the inaugural ASM Microbe 2016 – an unmatched event that brought ASM's General Meeting and ICAAC meeting under one roof.
In an interview at ASM's Microbe 2016 Meeting in Boston, ABC News' Chief Health and Medical Editor Richard Besser talks with Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and business leader, about the state of global health and the importance of microbial sciences in basic and translational research to foster transformative innovations.

Posted by:

En este episodio de ASM ¡En Vivo! tenemos como invitados a Jessica Rivera, estudiante doctoral de la Universidad de Puerto Rico, Tasha Santiago, Lecturer de la Universidad Politécnica de California en San Luis Obispo y Raul Cano, Catedrático Emérito de la Universidad Politécnica de California en San Luis Obispo, quienes nos describen sus trabajos en el area de la Paleomicrobiología

This Week in Microbiology at ASM Microbe 2016 in Boston with David Schneider and Vanessa Sperandio talking about their work on regulation of bacterial virulence in the gut by bacterial adrenergic sensors, and the physiological mechanisms that make us ill and that help us recover.

Can you explain your science in 30 seconds?

Posted by:
Microbiologists attending Microbe 2016, the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology, attempt to explain their science in 30 seconds.

A phase II clinical trial demonstrated that a new type of treatment for genital herpes, an immunotherapy called GEN-003, may reduce the activity of the virus and the number of days with recurrent herpes. This effect of treatment, given by a series of three injections, appears to last for up to at least one year. The research is presented at the ASM Microbe research meeting in Boston.

Research being presented at the ASM Microbe research meeting provides clear evidence that the gloves of healthcare workers contaminate hospital surfaces with bacteria. The researchers’ data also suggest that types of bacteria may affect cross-transmission rates among contaminated gloves and the hospital surfaces.

Research presented at the ASM Microbe meeting suggests that microbial water quality issues of Flint drinking water are improving, based on recent testing in March 2016, but that continued vigilance is in order. 

Research presented at the ASM Microbe research meeting provides compelling evidence that children acquire Streptococcus mutans, the bacterium most frequently associated with dental caries, from intra- and extra-familial sources besides their mother.
