Title: Friday ID Conference: “TB Clinical Trials: So Many Drugs, So Little Time” – Jason Stout, MD
Date: June 22, 2012
Time: 8:30 – 9:30 a.m.
Location: 1131 Bioinformatics (directions)
Description: Dr. Jason Stout earned his MD from SUNY-Upstate in 1996 and did his residency and ID fellowship at Duke, where he has been on the faculty since 2002. His clinical interests are in tuberculosis, non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections, HIV/AIDS, and general infectious diseases. Dr. Stout’s research focuses on the epidemiology, natural history, and treatment of tuberculosis and nontuberculous mycobacterial infections. He is also interested in the impact of HIV infection on mycobacterial infection and disease. In addition to his faculty appointment at Duke, Stout serves as the state controller of the National Tuberculosis Controllers Association.
Additionally, Dr. Stout shares that he and Dr. Gary Cox (director of the Duke ID fellowship program) are going to Graceland for Elvis Week this summer. It’s possible that if you ask nicely he will do his best impersonation of The King after his talk.
(It’s the second-to-last Friday conference of the year; we hope you’ll forgive the levity).
Refreshments will be served.
