A jointly hosted lecture by the Research and Development Department and Clinical Society on Thursday 9th December 2010 from 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Presented by Professor Jeremy Farrar, OBE. Head of the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit, Ho Chi Minh city, Viet Nam.
Location: Lecture Theatre, Post Graduate Medical Centre, Royal United Hospital, Bath.
The lecture will cover clinical lessons from diseases both old (eg TB, meningitis) and new (swine flu, bird flu) and of traditional relevance to both the developing world (dengue, malaria) and the developed (malaria, TB, flu, sepsis). The example of flu will be used to show how such illnesses are actually now of global importance.
