Queen Anne Science Café: Why Do We Need a Malaria Vaccine
Tuesday, June 7 at 7:30 p.m.
Speaker: Ashley Vaughan, Senior Scientist, Seattle BioMed
The emergence of drug-resistant parasites and insecticide-resistant mosquitoes together with a neglect of control has allowed malaria to go on a rampage infecting an estimated 300-500 million people a year, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa. To truly eradicate this devastating disease, many believe a vaccine is urgently needed. Come hear Ashley discuss the challenges and efforts the group he works in is taking to develop a malaria vaccine.
This event is free and open to all ages.
Venue’s Address: located at 21 Mercer Street, Seattle, WA 98109.
