Everything everywhere all at once: interdisciplinary research across multiple microbes
In this inaugural lecture, Katharina Kranzer, Professor of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, will present the full breadth of her research on multiple pathogens.
Professor Katharina Kranzer's career includes extensive research on multiple pathogens including tuberculosis, HIV, Gram negative infections and antimicrobial resistance, sexual transmitted infections and SARS-CoV-2 from bench, to bedside, homes and communities. She will illustrate how research platforms are used to nourish and build early career scientists.
Please note the lecture will take place 17:15 - 18:15 followed by a drinks reception in the South Courtyard.
