Scottish Encounter with Tropical Disease
Fascinating display on the Scottish pioneers in the field of tropical medicine. David Livingstone was one of the first with his observations on the link between the tseste fly and sleeping sickness (Human African Trypanosomasis), and the development of a quinine based treatment for malaria, which became known as Livingstone's Rousers.
On 15 June at 2pm, Professor Mike Barrett, University of Glasgow, will give a talk on this fascinating subject. Admission to Professor Barrett's talk is free, however booking is essential, please call 0844 493 2207.
