News – Dr Eric Frost has joined the organizing committee!


The Journée Phare 2016 organizing committee is pleased to announce that Pr Eric Frost has officially joined our committee, in the role of associate professor.

Pr Eric Frost is a professor in the department of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at the Université de Sherbrooke. Author of over a hundred articles in various scientific journals, Dr. Frost is involved in the diagnosis and characterization of medically relevant microorganisms. Among other things, his team has developed a method for detecting genetic polymorphisms based on the fusion temperature of post-PCR probe-amplicon complexes. This technique facilitates the identification and subtyping of microorganisms, and makes it easier to detect antimicrobial resistance.

We are very glad to have his support in the planning of Journée Phare 2016!
