Topic: Tuberculosis: The Persistent Global Scourge of Humanity

Date: 26 May 2022

Time: 6pm – 7.30pm

Despite more than 60 years of antibiotics, tuberculosis (TB) remains a major cause of sickness and death and was the second largest infectious killer in 2020 after Covid-19. New drugs and an effective vaccine are desperately needed. Dr Ramakrishnan has developed a zebrafish model for TB that has led to a new understanding of host genetic susceptibilities and potentials for new anti-TB drugs that are relevant for humans too.

As sponsors, we have a number of complimentary places for clients at this webinar. If you would like to attend please contact
