War vs. ‘superbug’ to be subject of lecture at UA

Citizen Staff Writer



Clinical and laboratory efforts to battle a “superbug” that hospitalizes 300,000 people in the United States each year will be discussed at a free public lecture March 3.

Donna Wolk will discuss the clinical and laboratory aspects of fighting Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, which is the most common hospital-acquired infection.

The presentation will take place from 2 to 3 p.m. in Room 103 of the University of Arizona BIO5 Institute, 1657 E. Helen St.

Wolk is a principal investigator at BIO5, where she directs the Infectious Disease Research Core Laboratory, specializing in clinical and translational research.

She is also division chief for clinical microbiology and molecular microbiology at the Arizona Health Sciences Center.

A BIO5 tour will follow Wolk’s “No Mercy for MRSA” presentation.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
