Drs. Lewinsohn and Curlin present at the second Conversations in Global Health.
Drs. Lewinsohn and Curlin present at the second Conversations in Global Health, October 3, 2019.

On October 3, Conversations in Global Health returns to the Collins-Gaudy Conference Center at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. The program is presented by the Center for Global Child Health Research, operating out of both the School of Medicine and Department of Pediatrics at OHSU.

This, the second event in the quarterly series, will pair Marcel Curlin, M.D. with Center co-director Deborah Lewinsohn, M.D. The series aims to forge a community of global health researchers at OHSU. To this end, Drs. Curlin and Lewinsohn will discuss their current projects.

The Curlin laboratory works to improve its capacity to diagnose viral infections. Their current efforts are focused on these issues as they relate to Southeast Asia.

Meanwhile, with their collaborators at the South African Tuberculosis Vaccine Initiative, Dr. Lewinsohn's laboratory is studying the ability of BCG and new TB vaccines to induce TB immunity across the human life span. 

“Conversation is the key word,” the Center’s founder and co-director David Lewinsohn, M.D., Ph.D. says. “This is essential to the Center’s mission, which is to bring a collaborative spirit to global health across OHSU. From choice of location to the format—with two presenters—the seminar series is designed to start the dialogue necessary to foster these points of connection among global health researchers.”

At the Center for Global Child Health Research, we are committed to improving the outcomes of child health worldwide through collaborative research in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of childhood bacterial infection. Our community for engaging this goal begins with the excellence of our team at OHSU and extends to the network of child health researchers we are establishing throughout the world.
