Meeting the respiratory physicians of Alice Springs

In September of 2022, Professor Rob Edwards and Dr. Jess Carlson-Jones visited Alice Springs Hospital to meet with respiratory physicians.

The objective of this meeting was to explore the potential of employing microbial DNA sequencing as a tool to aid clinicians in the rapid identification of clinically important pathogens within clinical samples. This initiative was primarily aimed at enhancing the diagnostic capabilities related to chronic bronchiectasis, with a focus on improving healthcare outcomes in regional and remote communities.
