Jakko van Ingen received the ESCMID Young Investigator Award for his groundbreaking work on nontuberculous mycobacterial disease.During the European Conference on Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID), consultant clinical microbiologist and RIHS scientist Jakko van Ingen received the Young Investigator Award for his groundbreaking work on nontuberculous mycobacterial disease. Jakko has performed landmark studies which showed that pathogenicity of nontuberculous mycobacteria differs strongly by species, that current antibiotic treatment regimens can be optimized by better use of susceptibility testing and that several new and repurposed antibiotics can improve treatment outcomes in nontuberculous mycobacterial disease. For this work, captured in 170 papers in peer-reviewed journals and 10 book chapters, he received this prestigious award.
Jakko van Ingen is member of theme Infectious diseases and global health.
