Diagnostic Microbiology Development Program

Posted by liveBooks

We are so pleased with our well designed liveBooks website for the Diagnostic Microbiology Development Program. We proudly direct potential donors and volunteers to the site. We routinely include the link to the site in publications about our work in Cambodia and in talks at meetings of microbiologists. The liveBooks editSuite makes it easy to update the site with fresh photos and videos and information about recent events in the microbiology laboratories where we work. The diagnostic microbiology laboratories which the DMDP have implemented in Cambodia have recently been isolating Streptococcus suis, an emerging bacterial pathogen. Posting this information on our liveBooks website will attract the attention of microbiologists interested in using the laboratories for research on this important pathogen.

Jim McLaughlin, Ph.D, Co-founder and President of DMDP


The mission of the Diagnostic Microbiology Development Program is to build capacity for reliable infectious diseases diagnosis by strengthening the infrastructure and technical capabilities of technicians and clinical microbiologists in resource-poor countries. They accomplish this work with the assistance of many partners including volunteer clinical microbiologists willing to provide long term hands-on bench training in diagnostic microbiology.

DMDP was created in 2008 and to date have implemented microbiology laboratories in three provincial hospitals in Cambodia an provided technical assistance to the microbiology laboratory in the National Pediatric Hospital in Phnom Penh. To learn more about their amazing work go to their website or read the latest entry in their blog.
