Ana Gibertoni Cruz and Philip Fowler will be presenting "A bespoke dry broth microdilution panel for susceptibility testing of M. tuberculosis: a validation study" and "BashTheBug.net: A citizen science project helping to classify M. tuberculosis drug susceptibility testing", respectively, at ESM 2017, to take place in Croatia from 25th-28th June.
The UK's National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) announced that BashTheBug is the winner for the online community category in the "Let’s Get Digital" competition. The award recognises those involved in NIHR research using video, photography, websites, infographics and online communities to promote research. BashTheBug was one of five shortlisted entries, all of which reviewed by an expert panel and subject to a public vote. Congratulations to Phil Fowler, who leads this project, and thank you to the over 6,000 citizen scientists many volunteers who classified almost 350,000 images in 5 months!
