May 6 ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE: NO LONGER JUST A HOSPITAL PROBLEm
WARREN ROSE, UW-MADISON, SCHOOL OF PHARMACY
Warren joined the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy in 2007 as an Assistant Professor (CHS) in the Pharmacy Practice Division. Prior to arriving at UW, he earned his Pharm.D. from Butler University and then completed a PGY-1 residency in pharmacy practice at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, IL. Following residency training, he then completed a post-doctoral fellowship in infectious disease pharmacotherapy at the Anti-Infective Research Laboratory at Wayne State University, Detroit, MI.
Warren's translational research interests involve the pharmacodynamic effects of antimicrobials on antibacterial resistance development and virulence expression. His laboratory incorporates multiple in vitro modeling systems to simulate antimicrobial exposures against multi-drug resistant pathogens. These studies are used to evaluate optimal antibiotic activity, antibiotic penetration into simulated infections, the development of antibiotic resistance, and virulence His clinical studies involve the impact of patient immune responses and bacterial virulence on the treatment outcome of invasive S. aureus infections.
JUNE 10 FORESTry ownership and CONSERVATION in the NOrthwoods
ADENA RISSMAN, UW-MADISON, FOREST AND WILDLIFE ECOLOGY
Forest ownership and conservation are changing in the Northwoods and throughout the United States. Private and public forestlands are critical for natural resource production, outdoor recreation, wildlife habitat and water quality, yet they are increasingly threatened by development, invasive species and other local and global changes. Changes in large forest ownership have been some of the most dramatic over the past 15 years. The ways we define and talk about property shape our expectations for landowner and community member rights and responsibilities. Join UW-Madison professor Adena Rissman as she explores these important topics. Adena will also discuss how the changing mix of tools such as conservation easements, public lands, tax policy and certification are shaping forest management and resource stewardship.
