Ian Constable Lecture 2017
Please join us for our annual Ian Constable Lecture.
The 2017 lecture; Genome research produces new anti-malarial drug targets will be given by Professor Simon Foote – Director of The John Curtin School of Medical Research at The Australian National University.
Professor Simon Foote is a molecular geneticist. He has been Dean of The Australian School of Medicine at Macquarie University, Director of the Menzies Research Institute at the University of Tasmania and Divisional Head at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, Melbourne- just to name a few.
His talk will introduce the concept that perhaps as important is the innate immune response as mediated by platelets. Platelets are able to recognise infected red cells, bind to them, activate and kill malarial parasites.
