Tuberculosis research in the Gambia
04/07/2018 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Dr. Jayne Sutherland is head of the tuberculosis case-contact (TBCC) platform and TB immunology laboratory at MRC Gambia. The TBCC platform is one of the longest running household contact studies worldwide and permits analysis of host-pathogen interactions across the spectrum of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection and disease. Key projects include defining correlates of risk for development of infection and/or progression to active TB; development of novel diagnostics and understanding host inflammation in lung pathology and treatment response.
The meeting is free to attend. It will take place in LG8 (Bradford Hill Room) at LSHTM, Keppel Street, London WC1E 7HT.
