The UTE has invited Pr. C. Locht, from the Institut Pasteur Lille (France) to give a seminar on Latent Tuberculosis.
Pr. Locht is the director of the “Centre d’Infection et d’Immunité de Lille” and head of the research unit “Bacteria Respiratory Infections: pertussis and tuberculosis”. He has more than 20 years of research experience. He has contributed to the development of recombinant BCG strains, the development of sensitive typing systems for M.tuberculosis complex strains, the study of the mycobacterial cell wal biosynthesis and of the mechanisms of action of different drugs, and to the discovery of the protective antigen HBHA from M.tuberculosis.
The seminar, entitled “The other side of latency and how it can help to develop new diagnostic tools and vaccines for tuberculosis”, will be held on Friday, 3th December 2010 (11:30 am-12:30 pm) in the Fundació Institut Germans Trias i Pujol (IGTP).
From here we would like to invite everyone interested in tuberculosis research to come and to disseminate the poster (enclosed here below):
