UT Science Forum: Infection with the Malaria Parasite

Friday, 22 November, 2013

The UT Science Forum presented by Quest offers a weekly lecture on current science, medical, or technology developments. On November 22, 2013, Dr. Nathan Schmidt, assistant professor of microbiology, will speak on "Infection with the Malaria Parasite: Malaria Is Only Half the Problem" from 12 noon to 1 p.m.

The parasite that causes malaria has proven to be a mighty challenge and it has evaded essentially all experimental vaccines. Consequently, new approaches are desperately needed to treat this disease. Our current research is aimed at treating malaria through probiotics and dietary supplementation with sucralose.

The Science Forum is free and open to the public. Location: Thompson-Boling Arena Dining room C-D. Bring your lunch or purchase it from the Arena.
