    Biography
      Erik Munson is affiliated with the College of Health Sciences at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (USA). Munson received his doctorate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and completed postdoctoral training at the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene and the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. He has attained diplomate status with the American Board of Medical Microbiology. Munson and his staff have published a number of peer-reviewed manuscripts with respect to molecular diagnostics of STI pathogens and optimization of FDA-cleared assays. Munson has served as past Chair of American Society for Microbiology Division V and currently is associate editor for the Journal of Clinical Microbiology.

    Abstract

    Following attendance of this virtual event, participants should appreciate the changing epidemiology of trichomoniasis and clinician ordering patterns on the basis of improved laboratory diagnostics.  In addition, participants should be able to characterize the distribution of Mycoplasma genitalium infection in women and men on the basis of a new diagnostic option.  Finally, attendees will be able to describe the evolution of molecular screening for human papillomavirus and application to cervical cytology.

    Learning Objectives:
    I.Appreciate the changing epidemiology of trichomoniasis and clinician ordering patterns on the basis of improved laboratory diagnostics
    II.Characterize the distribution of Mycoplasma genitalium infection in women and men on the basis of a new diagnostic option
    III.Describe the evolution of molecular screening for human papillomavirus and application to cervical cytology
