Description: 
Division of Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Chemistry Seminar Series presents: Larry Schlesinger, MD​, Department Chair Dep​artment of Microbial Infection & Immunity, College of Medicine, The Ohio State University. "Tuberculosis: challenges and new translational approaches to study" Research in the Schlesinger laboratory focuses on the pathogenesis of tuberculosis and other airborne infectious agents that subvert lung immune mechanisms. Discoveries in the laboratory have led to greater insight into the unique attributes that soluble and cellular components of the innate immune system of humans bring to the microbe-host interface, translating them into drug discovery platforms. The presentation will provide an overview of ongoing studies in the laboratory, emphasizing newer translational models that will facilitate the identification of new drug targets for antibiotics and host-directed therapies.
