Just did a quick re-analysis which shows quite different results. When focusing on fluoroquinolones among E coli R2 for a (robust linear) model with only hosp quinolone use is lower than for model with community use only (.45 vs .53). [1/3]

My PhD advisor told me to put a ten dollar bill between the pages of my thesis in the university library. "So I can check to see if anyone read it?", I asked. "No, of course no one will read it," he replied, "but when you come back into town you'll always have money for lunch."

Must read: The U.S. should lead on public transparency & international dialogue to reduce global catastrophic biological risks and maximize biosecurity innovation. Biologists are trying to make bird flu easier to spread. Can we not?

Biologists are trying to make bird flu easier to spread - the decision making process for approving and funding this work should be made public and transparent

Attended the 2017 one. Learned a lot from these great modules with excellent instructors in a super beautiful summer city - Seattle. You don’t want to miss it!

Funny how opposing a massive, multi-billion-dollar government subsidy to a hugely profitable private company -- in effect, government interfering in the free market -- became "far left."

It is finally out, after a long journey of learning a lot about antibiotics, ESBL-resistance and statistical modelling: Extremely grateful to a great team of collaborators.

Do you have a background in microbiology or epidemiology/statistics? Interested in doing a postdoc at Yale looking at questions related to pneumococcal vaccination and population biology or spatial dynamics of RSV? Send me a message.

What a bunch of great ideas. I would be happier doing unpaid peer review if I knew it wasn't just one of the three or four journals a paper was cycling through, but would actually make an impact on the final paper.

Touching on many levels. Including the poignancy of how fast kids now grow into expectations that they show promise by excelling in their tween pursuits
