Multiresistant Tuberculosis

On the 22nd of May Daniela Cirililo, of the Scientific Institute S Raffaele in Milan, will give a seminar on Multirestiant Tuberculosis at 3.00 pm in the College lecture theatre.

Tuberculosis, a complex infectious disease caused by the bacterium M tuberculosis, is one of the diseases that have shaped the course of human history and that remains inadequately controlled.  Although a vaccine has been available for nearly a century, its efficacy is limited limited and a number of M tuberculosis strains resistant to the antibiotics currently available have emerged over time. D Cirillo will discuss mechainsms of resistance and the impact of the emergence of multiresistant strains for the control of tuberculosis.

All College students are warmly invited to attend this seminar lecture, espcially students reading Medicine, Biology, Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Sciences.  The poster of the lecture can be downloaded here.
