About the Cover

Clinical microbiologists should handle cultures from sterile sites (spinal fluid, blood, middle ear fluid) in a biosafety cabinet. See Biosafety Tips for a discussion of this advice from the Centers for Disease Control to prevent exposures to N. meningitidis in clinical laboratories. The cover photo shows Arnold Steigerwalt, a research chemist with the Centers for Disease Control's Meningitis and Special Pathogens Branch (MSPB) in the National Center for Infectious Diseases (NCID), performing a DNA-DNA hybridization analysis in one of the CDC's laboratories. The Meningitis and Special Pathogens Branch is responsible for monitoring an eclectic group of bacterial infections and disease syndromes of public health importance. The branch is organized into programs on meningitis, which focuses on Neisseria meningitidis, Steptococcus pneumoniae, and Haemophilus influenzae; vaccine-preventable diseases of childhood, which deals with Bordetella pertussis and Corynebacterium diptheriae; zoonotic pathogens, which works with Bacillus anthracis, Brucella spp., Leptospires, and "non-tuberculosis" mycobacterial infections; and unexplained deaths and other emerging infections.
