Next week Bob will be giving a talk as part of the Club EvMed virtual evolutionary medicine conversations. His talk is entitled: Does evolutionary biology have anything to say about how we should use antibiotics? Please find the link to the series here and the link for the registration for the talk here.

New paper out!
A new case report including Camilo, Bob and Kevin Gregg has been published today in JAC! We show that compartmentalization within the central nervous system can represent a niche with low selection given potential drug concentration gradients where Pseudomonas aeruginosa can grow large in numbers and acquire mutations conferring resistance to several beta-lactams. Check itContinue reading “New paper out!”
Welcome to Jessica!
A very warm, and belated welcome to Jessica Wallace, who joined the lab earlier this year and has since been working really hard and taking great care of the lab activities during the pandemic. Thanks for your great work and your adaptability during these trying times!!
New paper in EMPH!
There’s a new paper published at EMPH! We use a clinical case and the difficulties faced in terms of drug resistance evolution. We then aim at putting forward potential critical points to consider during the clinical decision making about antibiotic resistance in an ecological and evolutionary context!
New paper in PLoS B
A new paper in collaboration with the awesome Elsa Hansen, Jason Karslake, Andrew Read and Kevin Wood! Check it our here: https://journals.plos.org/plosbiology/article?id=10.1371/journal.pbio.3000713
New preprint available
A new preprint is not available at the medRxiv with Rishi Chanderraj and Bob! The gut microbiome predicts Enterococcus expansion but not the acquisition of vamcomycin resistance! Check it out here: http://medrxiv.org/content/early/2020/05/28/2020.05.26.20114181.abstract
Kevin has successfully defended his prelims and is now a PhD candidate! Terrific job Kevin!
In the midst of this pandemic, the Woods lab keeps receiving happy news! Masters student Meghan Linder is one of three students to win the 2020 Hunein F. Maassab Award for Excellence in Molecular Epidemiology from the MPH program at UMICH! Congratulations Meghan!
Congratulations to Camilo!
We are pleased to announce that Camilo has been awarded the JMS award from ESEB. Congratulations!
Kenetta has been awarded the College of Science Dean’s Graduate Award from the University of Idaho, and the Diane Haynes Memorial Award! Congratulations!
