Weissman Lab

Tracking Carbapenem-Resistant Bacteria


The Weissman lab and collaborators created, which tracks Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) infections in the continental U.S.

Outbreaks of carbapenem-resistant Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pose significant public health threats, but there is currently no surveillance network that alerts public health officials when outbreaks occur or provides easily-accessible information about the strains involved.

To fill this gap, the Weissman lab and its collaborators created, a website that is designed to provide real-time information about outbreaks across the United States and, potentially, around the world. The goal is to give public health officials a powerful new resource that helps identify new outbreaks and develop strategies for containing them.
