    M.G. Finn at the Atlanta Science Tavern - Let's Make a Vaccine: Managing Evolution Against a Formidable Foe

    Manuel's Tavern, 602 North Highland Ave NE, Atlanta 30307

    How do we design, build, and test new vaccines? Come learn about such a journey currently under way at Georgia Tech and central Brazil.

    Georgia Tech researchers are developing a vaccine against a single-celled creature called Leishmania (“lesh-MAY-nee-ah”). This  ancient organism has infected mammals throughout recorded history. Transmitted by insect bites, Leishmania currently afflicts about 1.5 million people all over the world. Maybe, just maybe, we can give ourselves the power to fight it.
