Leading Medical Microbiologist Professor Mark Wilcox to present his latest study at Infection Prevention Society Conference 2018

Professor Mark Wilcox, MD, consultant microbiologist and Head of R&D in Microbiology at the University of Leeds and Leeds Teaching Hospitals, will present the results of his latest study at the prestigious Infection Prevention Society 2018 Conference being held at the Scottish Event Campus, Glasgow from 30 September – 2 October. 

Commenting on the study he led, Professor Wilcox said, “Hand hygiene is one of the most important components of infection prevention and these findings have serious implications for minimising the spread of bacteria including MRSA, enterobacteria and enterococci in hospital toilets.”

His Symposium is entitled  ‘Is the choice of hand drying method a decision for infection control teams rather than facilities?’and will take place on Monday 1 October 2018 from 12.55 to 13.25 in the Boisdale Room.
