Medical Student’s Study Published in Infectious Disease Journal

Congratulations to medical student Avery Nelson, whose study “Optimal duration of antimicrobial therapy for uncomplicated Gram-negative bloodstream infections,” was just published in the prestigious international journal Infection. Infection presents peer-reviewed clinically relevant information about infectious diseases and public health for readers and contributors across the globe.

The project focused on determining how long patients with bloodstream infections should be treated with antimicrobial therapy to achieve the best outcome.

School of Medicine professor and clinical internal medicine chair Dr. Helmut Albrecht, associate professor and director of the SOM Antimicrobial Stewardship Program Dr. Majdi Al-Hasan, and University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy professors Julie Justo and Brandon Bookstaver also contributed to the research study.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
