UCI jointly receives CDC grant to combat health care-associated staph infections
Date:3/15/2011

e infections require costly medical attention, including frequent hospital readmission.

"MRSA prevention and control is a national priority because of its virulence and transmission in healthcare settings," Huang said. "Identification of an effective strategy to reduce MRSA infection and hospitalization would be a major advancement in clinical care."

Huang is a national leader in the effort to combat hospital-borne MRSA infections. In 2010, she received a three-year, $10 million federal Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality award, funded by American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009, to explore new methods to prevent staph infections in people who harbor MRSA bacteria when they're discharged from the hospital.

The Harvard-UCI group joins teams from Duke University, University of Pennsylvania, Washington University in St. Louis and Chicago's Hektoen Institute for Medical Research in the Prevention Epicenter grant program.
