Public Lecture: Pneumococcus: the forgotten pathogen?

While COVID-19 stopped the world in its tracks, other microbes such as the pneumococcus continued to kill millions of people each year around the world.

Join us for this free public event to hear more about the pneumococcus, the diseases it causes and how we are solving this major global health problem.

We have some excellent speakers lined up!

Professor James Paton is Director of the Research Centre for Infectious Diseases at the University of Adelaide and a global authority on the pneumococcus. He has published over 370 research papers in his distinguished 40-year career and was recently named South Australian Scientist of the Year.

Dr Manon Cox will be flying in from the US to share her experience with the pneumococcus and vaccines. Manon led the development of Flublok at Protein Sciences, the only FDA approved recombinant protein-based influenza vaccine. The company was acquired by Sanofi Pasteur in 2017.

Hosted by award-winning author, scientist, TV personality and Senior Australian of the Year for SA Professor Rob Morrison OAM, this is an event not to be missed!
