Participant Testimonials

Nov 20 - Nov 25, 2016

My participation in the BIRS workshop has been a wonderful professional development opportunity. I had the opportunity to meet new contacts working in complementary fields and have begun plans for a multi-country collaborative research proposal submission related to antimicrobial resistance and stewardship. Several of my students and postdocs attended and their participation has expanded their networks and allowed them to interact with scientists in a manner which is not typical when graduate students encounter more senior scientists in their field at a regular meeting. The fresh insight I gained will have a significant impact on my research in the coming year.
