I realize this is outside of the scope of most readers (so let me apologize in advance for some wasted electrons), but here’s a quick announcement of the 4th ASM/ESCMID Conference on methicillin-resistant staphylococci in animals; animals and human health implications. (Yes, the name’s a bit long and drawn out, and I probably take the blame for it since I think I came up with it originally, but at least it’s descriptive).

This is a nice interdisciplinary meeting for people from the veterinary, public health, human  infectious disease and microbiology fields, and this time it’s being held in Chicago in November. Anyone interested in the meeting can find out more here.
