Role of the website

George G. Zhanel, PhD, FCCP

"This website is the official website of the Canadian Antimicrobial Resistance Alliance (CARA) which focuses on both community (e.g. respiratory and urinary) and hospital (e.g. ICU, nosocomial, respiratory, urinary, fungal and MDR) infections. The website continues to grow under my leadership. As Editor-in-Chief, I will continue to work with a multidisciplinary group of Canadian experts to improve this unique, multipurpose, multidisciplinary infectious diseases/medical microbiology content based website which addresses Canadian issues in antimicrobial/ antifungal resistance and antimicrobial/ antifungal usage."
