Society of Critical Care 2010 Citation Award

Keiko Tarquinio, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, from Professor Tom Webster's biomedical engineering lab group just received the 2010 Citation Award from the Society for Critical Care last week in Miami out of over 1100 presentations at the Society for Critical Care Medicine's 39th Critical Care Congress. This was for the presentation "Inhibition of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Growth on Chemically Etched Polyvinyl Chloride Endotracheal Tubes: An in vitro Model" (authors: Keiko Tarquinio, Nathan Rubien, and Thomas Webster) funded from the RI STAC fund. The purpose of the work is to limit infection of endotracheal tubes.
