Day & date: Monday 2 March
Time: 12.30 -1.30
Venue: Level 5 lecture theatre, Alfred centre
Chair: Prof Terry O'Brien
Guest speaker: Professor Freya Fowkes
Topic: Eliminating Drug-Resistant Malaria: How do we stop history repeating itself?

Abstract: The emergence of novel and multidrug-resistant pathogens is one of the most pressing international public health emergencies of our times. In this CCS IWD seminar, Prof Freya Fowkes will discuss the alarming emergence of resistant malaria parasites which are overtaking and becoming dominant in SEAsia. Should these strains spread to Africa, where more than 90% of malaria deaths occur, the consequences could be catastrophic. Freya will highlight her multidisciplinary approach which aims to understand the emergence and spread of drug resistance as well as to define strategies to contain and ultimately eliminate drug-resistant malaria.
