I like a party, but am not very fond of tea….
I am currently en route to Boston for the ASM/ Microbe conference. I have never been to Boston before, nor have I attended a conference in the USA, so really looking forward to it. Maybe I will come across some characters as described in this post!
I think when you go to a conference as big as this, with lots of parallel sessions and sideshows, you need to have a very clear idea of what you want to focus on before you go. Otherwise it is very easy to suffer information overload.
Therefore my objectives are as follows:
- Improve my knowledge of antibiotic stewardship.
- Find out what future innovations are being planned for the Kiestra TLA
- Become really familiar with the current Rapid PCR platforms and their test profiles.
Anything else is a bonus.
And I certainly hope to see plenty of Boston as well.
So no more blog posts for the next week. Look forward to getting down to some serious writing when I return, hopefully with the batteries recharged, and with lots of new ideas!
