The young microbiologists need not worry about their future since there is a lot of potential in microbiology but they have to follow the three Hs – honesty, hard work and being humane, observed AP’s senior most medical microbiologist C.S. Bhaskaran.

He was speaking at the inaugural session of the 16{+t}{+h}annual conference of Indian Association of Medical Microbiologists’ AP chapter here on Saturday.

Dr. Bhaskaran who held important positions like DME and Vice-Chancellor of NTR University of Health Sciences also advised the students to come out of their labs and go to the hospital first (to watch the treatment of patients). Earlier microbiology was called bacteriology and the name was changed after a lot of struggle. It should be renamed clinical microbiology, he felt and wanted IAMM to take up the issue.

Microbiology was one of the important pillars of medical diagnostics and plays a key role in treatment, said Principal of Andhra Medical College N. Kalpana Subrahmanyam. She urged the microbiologists to gear up to identify the many new bacteria and viruses. “Like RAW, FBI and CBI other investigating agencies who keep track of terrorists, microbiologists have to be aware of newer trends and diseases,” said Dr. Kalpana Subrahmanyam.

She released the conference souvenir.
