Friday 23 Feb 2018 - 13:00   Live Stream from the Byre Theatre,  St Andrews:

Annual public lecture to celebrate the United Nations International Day of Women and Girls in Science, hosted by the School of Biology.

We welcome Professor Eleanor Riley, director of The Roslin Institute, and Dean for Research and Professor of Immunology and Infectious Disease at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh. Her lecture, Combatting Malaria, will discuss how fundamental studies of malaria immunity have the potential to inform the development of new tools to prevent malaria (through vaccines), to treat malaria (with new therapies) and to reduce the spread of malaria (by monitoring malaria control programs and identifying hotspots of ongoing transmission).
