  • Drug-resistant bacteria lurk in subway stations, high school students discover | Newswire
    more serious even life threatening A natural consequence of evolution and the widespread use and misuse of antibiotics resistance is increasing worldwide Although I knew resistance is considered a serious threat to modern medicine I went into this project not certain what to expect I wasn t even sure we would see antibiotic resistant bacteria let alone multi drug resistant bacteria says Dunaif a senior at St Ann s School in Brooklyn Now we hope to build off the work I did over the summer by searching for more types of antibiotic resistance in more stations Joining her on the continuing search for drug resistant bugs are Anya Auerbach a senior at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School and Will Lounsbery Scaife now a freshman at New York University Nell Kirchberger has since returned to California Both took on their own projects over the summer although their work was not included in the current Pathomap publication Now the three of them with guidance from Jeanne Garbarino director of Rockefeller s Science Outreach Program are preparing a rigorous sampling protocol they plan to test at the Lexington Avenue 59 th Street station and getting ready to look for resistance against four additional antibiotics As part of this contribution to Pathomap s ongoing work they intend to use genetic sequencing and analysis provided by Weill Cornell Medical College to identify the resistance genes and the molecular pathways the microbes that contain them use to evade the drugs There s no question high school students can do legitimate primary research If we are going to encourage critical thinking which is important regardless of what you do in life I think it is important to have them ask and attempt to answer open ended questions Garbarino says Lounsbery Scaife spent his summer swabbing water fountains in Central Park The sequencing results aren t complete yet but the experience he says has given him a better understanding of the scientific process not just the results It has de romanticized the whole process for me but not in a bad way I learned how slow and consistent you have to be throughout writing everything down and doing everything exactly the same way This might deter some people from wanting to do science but for me it just validates my interest in it Lounsbery Scaife says Auerbach meanwhile attempted to track microbes as they accumulated over time on Grand Central Station ticket machines Her effort which she says attracted a surprising lack of interest from subway riders was unsuccessful because she couldn t get enough DNA Nevertheless she sees value in the disappointment I was hoping to get something really cool and exciting and instead it was like nope we can t even sequence this I did a lot of troubleshooting and I am confident that if there was something there we would have gotten it Auerbach says Auerbach s results are actually quite typical of research even that by professional scientists Garbarino says Someone said to me
