Free Virtual Seminar on Leishmaniasis in Peru

In Situ Labs co-sponsors will offer clinical, epidemiological, ecological, and preventive perspectives on Leishmaniasis from a panel of experts. It is presented in conjunction with co-sponsors of the In Situ Labs initiative, which is focused on building local capacity to monitor wildlife health and disease emergence. Leishmania is of particular interest due to its ability to affect both wildlife and human populations, yet our understanding of its ecology and pathogenesis remains incomplete. Virtual attendees of this panel discussion will learn about the clinical aspects of tegumentary leishmaniasis in Peru, the vectors of leishmaniasis, how the protozoa interacts with the host’s immune system, and much more.
