May 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Speaker: Stephen Cole, VMD, MS, DACVM

Dr. Stephen Cole, MS, VMD, is an assistant professor of clinical microbiology in the Department of Pathobiology. He obtained his MS in microbiology from the College of William and Mary in 2011 and his VMD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2015. He became boarded in bacteriology and immunology in 2018 and virology in 2020 by the American College of Veterinary Microbiologists. Dr. Cole’s research focuses how to understand and mitigate the spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria in companion animals. Through his work, he aims (1) to characterize the clinical and molecular epidemiology of extensively drug resistant bacteria (i.e. carbapenem-resistant Enterobacterales) of dogs and cats and (2) to establish best educational practices in antimicrobial stewardship to promote proper use of these critical drugs.
