Registration


Day One
Session Chair: Maiwenn Kersaudy-Kerhoas, Associate Professor, School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Heriot-Watt University, United Kingdom

09:00

New Diagnostic Tools for Managing Fever in MSF Settings
Ethan Guillen, Dx program manager, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), United States of America

Many patients present to Médecins Sans Frontières with fevers that are difficult to diagnose. There is a need for affordable, robust, semi-open source multiplex diagnostic platforms at the referral level to identify the fever-causing pathogen, antibiotic susceptibility, and bacterial infections.
