Prof. Niaz Banaei from Stanford University visited our lab

On 1st Nov 2019, Prof. Niaz Banaei from Stanford University, visited our lab and exchanged ideas in the field of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). We discussed about the trends of AMR and development of rapid antimicrobial susceptibility test (rAST) methods. Our group members showed recent progress of our cooperative work in rAST platform development and obtained many valuable suggestions from Prof. Banaei.

Prof. Banaei is a leading researcher in the field of clinical diagnosis and infectious diseases, and we have long history of successful collaborations since 2013. In 2018, we together published a systematic discussion on the using of microfluidic technology to address the grand challenge of drug resistance In that review, we discussed the grim situation of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), the obstacles of beating it and the potential weapon, AST tools based on microfluidics, which are fast, accurate and cost-effective.

Prof. Banaei is currently a full Professor of Pathology and Medicine (Division of Infectious Diseases & Geographic Medicine) at Stanford University and is the Medical Director of the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory at Stanford Health Care. In addition, he is the Director of Stanford Clinical Microbiology Fellowship. He serves on the board of advisors for the Center for Disease Control Tuberculosis Epidemiologic Studies Consortium II (TBESC).
