Our ability and willingness to come together and talk through issues will build a solid foundation for the University and the coastal community to become a much more economically progressive area.

As President of The University of Southern Mississippi, I am deeply troubled that USM’s commitment to meeting the needs of the Mississippi Gulf Coast has been called into question. I am aware of the historical tension surrounding access to higher education in the coastal community, and I respect each community member who has worked tirelessly to ensure that the coast is not marginalized or overlooked but is instead recognized as a critical region that deserves access to quality educational opportunities.

With approximately 86,000 cases and 11,000 deaths per year in the United States, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), better known as Staph infection, is a threat that graduate students at the University of Southern Mississippi have taken to task.

With funding from Mississippi INBRE, Gyan Sahukhal and Dhritiman Samanta, graduate students working under Southern Miss Professor Mohamed Elasri, director of Mississippi INBRE, have been able to publish their research on Staph infections. This research is a key step in finding a cure for Staph infections.
