Rolf Horstmann "Human genetic studies on tuberculosis and malaria"

Rolf HorstmannWalter Muecksch Hamburg

"Genetic epidemiology makes use of the more than 15 Mio polymorphisms in the human genome to relate differences in disease manifestation to distinct genetic variants and their functional impacts. In Ghana, West Africa, we studied over 10,000 adults and young children highly exposed to tuberculosis and malaria, respectively. Using candidate gene studies we verified, refined or questioned previous experimental data. In addition, we successfully applied genome-wide association approaches to identify novel human genetic factors affecting the courses of infection."

The "HZI Colloquium" is a scientific lecture series at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig, organized to host internationally renowned experts from the field of infection research. Invited guest speakers present their current research activities to a scientific audience. The presentation is followed by an open discussion.
We cordially invite interested scientists to take part in this colloquium.
The HZI Colloquium takes place on Wednesdays, 5.15 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. in the Forum, X0.13.
