Dr. Amy Mathers is an infectious disease physician and an associate professor of medicine and pathology at the University of Virginia. She is clinical director of the Adult Antimicrobial Stewardship Program and associate director of clinical microbiology at the University of Virginia Medical Center. Focusing on the urgent clinical problem of increasing carbapenem resistance in Enterobacteriaceae, Dr. Mathers has been evaluating detection methods in clinical microbiology and molecular transmission of carbapenemase genes for the last ten years. With current support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, she has been recently investigating the role that the hospital wastewater environment can play in evolution and dissemination of carbapenemase genes.
Dr. Mathers will be presenting “Down the drain: The exploration of multidrug resistant bacteria in hospital plumbing,” at the CBE's next seminar. If you would like to meet with her, please contact Brian Pettygrove at firstname.lastname@example.org
