Saturday Science Exploration Series: New Developments in Fighting Tuberculosis


Location: Jordan Hall, College of Science, Room 101

Jeff Schorey, Professor of Biological Sciences

Tuberculosis (TB) takes the lives of approximately 1.4 million people per year. Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacteria responsible for TB, is the leading cause of death by a bacterial pathogen. This presentation will discuss why this pathogen is so deadly and what approaches Notre Dame researchers are using to develop better vaccines and diagnostics to combat TB.
