Staphylococcus aureus: Lessons learned from 20 years with the persistent pathogen”

We are thrilled to announce that Vance Garrison Fowler will be our Forbes Fellow for 2017.

Professor Vance Fowler is a clinician scientist focused on clinical and translational research involving antibiotic-resistant bacteria. He is a professor in the Departments of Medicine and Molecular Genetics & Microbiology at Duke University Medical Center and for two decades he has focused on the diagnosis, treatment, and understanding of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Professor Fowler is currently the Principal Investigator of the Antibacterial Resistance Leadership Group (ARLG), a $62 million NIH grant facilitated by the Duke Clinical Research Institute that develops, designs, implements, and manages a clinical research agenda to increase the ability to combat antibacterial resistance. The ARLG, launched in 2013 with funding from the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, aims to advance research by building transformational trials that will change clinical practice and reduce the impact of antimicrobial resistance.
