Just how close is ‘too close for comfort’ when tuberculosis is in the air?”


    Date: November 8, 2016

    Time: 17:30

    Location: Lecture Theatre 1, the Centre for Medicine, Lancaster Road


    Professor Andrea Cooper from the University of Leicester Department of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation will give her Professorial Inaugural Lecture.

    Humans and the bug that causes tuberculosis have lived together for a long time. For most, the interaction does not cause a problem but for many the disease can be debilitating and deadly. Why are some people fine living with this bug while others suffer? Professor Cooper will discuss how her work helps us to define the role of the immune response in defining the health outcomes for those who encounter the bacteria which cause tuberculosis.
