ABATE is a cluster-randomized trial that will evaluate different strategies for preventing hospital-acquired infections, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections, a potentially serious complication and one that is particularly dangerous in intensive care units, although MRSA is known to create problems across a wide range of settings.

Dr. Huang was one 10 winners of CRF Research Achievement Awards, which are presented annually. A key report related to the ABATE project was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in June of 2013.

Congratulations to Dr. Huang and her team!
