Loretta Ng, OD, FAAO (Associate Professor at CO, Chief of Optometric Staff at ECI) and Vishwanath Venketaraman, PhD (Professor of Microbiology/Immunology at COMP) are co-principal investigators in the Antibiotic Resistance Monitoring in Ocular Microorganisms (ARMOR) program sponsored by Bausch and Lomb. ARMOR is the only multi-center, nation-wide program to monitor antibiotic resistance among key ocular pathogens. This study started in 2009 and has been widely presented and published in ophthalmology and optometry. It is truly exciting for WUCO and WesternU to be a part of this national surveillance study helping to find a solution to this global public health concern.
