Tuberculosis focus of LANL lecture series

-A A +A

Los Alamos National Laboratory researcher Harshini Mukundan will discuss the re-emergence of tuberculosis in a series of three lectures called “The Microbe Strikes Back: The Return of Tuberculosis.”
The talks, which focus on how effective diagnosis can prevent its spread and save lives, take place in Los Alamos, Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The first scheduled talk is 7 p.m. today at the Duane Smith Auditorium.
“Human evolution and persistent diseases have existed side-by-side,” said Mukundan, who works in LANL’s Physical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy Group. Mukundan said that tuberculosis is one of the oldest and most challenging diseases known to man and “effective diagnosis can save lives and prevent its spread. A new laboratory and nature-inspired strategy can detect tuberculosis equally well in human and animal populations.”
Mukundan’s other talks will be April 3 at the James A. Little Theater in Santa Fe, on the New Mexico School for the Deaf campus, and April 6 at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History in Albuquerque.
All Frontiers in Science presentations are free of charge. The presentations are sponsored by the Fellows of Los Alamos National Laboratory.
