Advisory Board Meeting

We had our inaugural Advisory Board meeting in Blacksburg, VA, on July 20, 2015, and it was an incredible privilege for the Core Project Team, students, and post-docs to interact with the Advisory Board members personally. Some of the Advisory Board members delivered morning presentations, which were insightful overviews about how other groups in the US and the world are responding and working to identify the issues surrounding the spread of antibiotic resistance. Subsequently, Project Team PIs shared briefly about their respective plans of action for each of the project objectives, in which the Advisory Board provided excellent targeted feedback to our current progress and future plans. Not only did we work hard during our day-long meeting, but we were able to enjoy each other’s company over delicious feasts the previous evening and after the meeting at two of the finest dinner spots in the New River Valley!
