Eureka Prize-winner Scott O'Neill to present AID seminar
All are invited to Using inherited bacteria as a way to stop mosquitoes from transmitting dengue: The Eliminate Dengue Program? on 26 March. The presenter, Professor Scott O'Neill from Monash University, led the team which won the 2013 Eureka Prize for Infectious Diseases Research.
AID researchers are drawn from infectious disease experts from across QIMR and UQ who apply leading technologies to identify, understand and prevent infectious disease.
The core AID research themes are bacterial, viral, parasitic and fungal infectious diseases afflicting humans. This microbial pathogenesis research effort brings together basic science and clinical research.
AID links molecular microbiological and clinical expertise from the UQ Faculties of Science and Health Sciences, and UQCCR, QCMRI, IMB, AIBN and the Diamantina Institute.
