The Clinical Microbiology Laboratory has a long and distinguished history at Mayo Clinic, marked by the development of ground-breaking new culture techniques, immunoassays, and molecular methods to detect, identify and characterize microbial pathogens and provide guidance for their treatment. Along the way, Mayo Clinic microbiologists took on many challenges, from deadly pandemics, to bioterrorist threats and imported pathogens. This engaging presentation will explore the critical milestones, significant breakthroughs, and fascinating stories that highlight the evolution and impact of Mayo Clinic's clinical microbiology laboratory.
