Next Science Café Cleveland event to address what tuberculosis teach us in 2016

Science Cafe Cleveland LogoMany around the world become infected with mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB), the aetiologic agent of human TB, yet few become ill with disease. What does that observation teach us about how our immune system controls infections in general, about how immune failure causes disease and may promote antibiotic resistance, and about how to make our immune system better at controlling infections? Join the discussion with W. Henry Boom at this month’s Science Café Cleveland to find out.

Boom, professor of medicine and director of the Tuberculosis Research Unit at CWRU, will present “What can that age-old disease tuberculosis teach us in 2016?”

The talk will be held Monday, June 13, at 7 p.m. at the Music Box Supper Club’s Concert (1148 Main Ave.).

The CWRU chapter of Sigma Xi, WCPN ideastream and the Music Box Supper Club sponsor Science Café Cleveland.
