Translating a Drop of Blood into Effective Antibiotic Dosing in Infants and Children (2018–2021)

Abstract:
The optimal use of currently available antibiotics is of utmost importance at a time when few new antibiotics are being developed and there is a continued emergence of antibiotic resistant `superbugs¿. This Fellowship will establish evidence-based, effective antibiotic dosing regimens for children with severe infection - using just a drop of blood. By applying innovation in microsampling, my research will advance our treatment of infection and result in better outcomes for sick children.
