Travis sits down with Dr. Eileen Burd, Director of Clinical Microbiology at Emory University Hospital. They have a conversation about everything from infectious diseases to biofilms, working with the Americans who were infected with the Ebola virus, signs that you MIGHT be a microbiologist, not having time to watch television, and when we might be able to go back to sporting events.
Dr. Burd also serves as Professor, Emory University School of Medicine.According to Dr. Burd, her primary work focus is clinical service involving the laboratory diagnosis and management of patients with infectious diseases with attention to unusually resistant isolates, patterns and trends. As time permits, I undertake applied research projects. I have varied research interests surrounding the nature of etiologic agents and the diagnosis and epidemiology of infectious diseases.
