Early Diagnosis and Treatment of Infectious Tropical Diseases
Kenneth Gollob, Senior Scientist, Tropical Disease Research Program, Center for Chemical Biology, SRI Biosciences
Infectious and parasitic tropical diseases, such as Leishmaniasis and Chagas, affect millions of people worldwide, primarily those living in poverty. Most current treatments are ineffective or toxic -- and patients have few options for early diagnosis and treatment. In this podcast, SRI's Dr. Kenneth Gollob discusses how SRI is developing novel therapies, diagnostics and biomarkers in the fight against these chronic infectious diseases.
