Guest Speaker: PD Dr. med. Claudia Denkinger (view profile in Research Directory)
Topic: Transdisciplinary research to close the diagnostic gap in Tuberculosis care
The Series directs special attention towards the added value of interdisciplinary and international cooperation in global health research. Every first Tuesday of the month, speakers share insights into their research projects while focusing on research processes, methods as well as lessons learned. Following the 30-minute speaker’s presentation, the Series encourages an academic exchange between the speaker and the audience in a 30-minute Q&A session.
PD Dr. med. Claudia Denkinger is the head of the Infectious Disease and Tropical Medicine Division at the University Hospital Heidelberg. In our upcoming Academy Series, she will share insights into her research on the development and evaluation of novel diagnostic tests for Tuberculosis, that are particularly relevant and suitable for low- and middle-income settings.
