About The Inaugural CTSS Seminar

This fall, the CTSS seminar series was kicked off with an exciting presentation by Dr. Partick Duffy, discussing the recent progress in the fight against malaria. Dr. Duffy is a clinical researcher, whose work at the National Institutes of Health has taken him all around the world to malaria endemic areas where help is most needed. Often, such areas experience high levels of poverty and political turmoil. Most recently, Dr. Duffy found himself in the midst of a coup d’etat in Mali while training a group of students.

Dr. Duffy’s talk gave a taste of what’s to come. Several speakers are lined up throughout the semester with topics ranging from the study of infections by parasites, bacteria and viruses, to the characterization of the immune response to those infections, as well as the work carried out in developing novel therapeutic agents.
