CCAD Chair of Science Julie Posey has worked with the Ohio State University’s Division of Infectious Diseases for the last two years on tracking strains of methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and tuberculosis.
Her work alongside the division resulted in a research paper, Development of Bio-informatics Research Network for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) Blood Stream Infections (BSI): A Multicenter Regional MRSA Surveillance Collaborative for Genotyping, Geocoding, and Data Collection for Outbreak Investigation.
The paper was presented by OSU researchers at the Infectious Disease Society of America conference in San Diego, Oct. 17–21.
The paper was about a study that Posey worked on to create a tracking profile for a particular MRSA strain. The study included nearly 500 positive cases of MRSA.
