Meningitis Day 2015 – diagnosing better outcomes

To mark ‪Meningitis‬ Day on 24 April 2015 our Research Office colleague Rachel Beaton wrote this personal piece for the @longitude_prize blog. The Longitude Prize is for work looking to overcome the global issue of antibiotic resistance.

“Meningitis poses a difficult problem for doctors as it can present either as a bacterial or viral infection; finding out which is present in a patient as quickly as possible is crucial. Rachel Beaton from the University of Stirling shares her personal story of being diagnosed with meningitis, with a doctor’s perspective from Prize Advisory Panel member Professor Chris Butler.”
