Congratulations to Andrea Parisi, who is the recipient of the 2017 Geoff Mercer Travel Endowment.  Andrea will use the Endowment to attend the “ID week” infectious disease conference in San Diego and present her work on multidrug resistant non-typhoidal Salmonella infections.   Following the conference, Andrea will visit the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) in Seattle, USA, to collaborate on a study estimating global incidence of invasive non-typhoidal Salmonella (iNTS).
