16-17/04: Public Seminars on "Host-Pathogen Interactions in Tuberculosis" at HKU and City U

Dr Olivier Neyrolles, Research Director at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), and Head of the Department of Institute of Pharmacology and Structural Biology (IPBS), Toulouse - France, will give two public seminars on 16-17 April entitled:

"Host-Pathogen Interactions in Tuberculosis”

Abstract:

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is a facultative intracellular pathogen that thrives inside host macrophages. A key trait of M. tuberculosis is to exploit and manipulate nutrient trafficking inside infected macrophages to ensure survival and replication inside the phagosome. Here, I will discuss recent discoveries about transition metal and amino acid exploitation in the arms race between M. tuberculosis and the immune system, and how targeted approaches might complement existing TB chemotherapeutic regimens with novel anti-infective therapies.
