Introduction to the Bolivian trip

16 May 2007

By way of introduction to the trip let me give you some background first...

I am currently a Doctor, Clinical Microbiologist and state registered Clinical Scientist working full time at the Scottish Meningococcal and Pneumococcal Reference Laboratory (SMPRL) based at Stobhill Hospital. I am responsible for both routine clinical laboratory work and all the research conducted at SMPRL with Dr Giles Edwards who is the director of SMPRL. The SMPRL is a national laboratory which aids diagnosis and characterisation of three organisms which cause a wide range of diseases. These three organisms are Neisseria meningitidis, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae.
