Presenter: Dr Tom Yates, Research Department of Infection and Population Health, UCL.

Chair: Prof Ibrahim Abubakar, Centre for Infectious Disease Epidemiology, UCL.

Time: 16.00-17.00 on 2 May 2014.

Venue: MSc Room, 4th Floor, Mortimer Market Centre.

Directions: The Mortimer Market Centre is in a courtyard off Capper Street, close to Tottenham Court Road. Turn right at the top of the stairs (or out of the lifts) and press the buzzer to be let through the double doors.

Is exposure to CO2 a reasonable proxy for exposure to TB? Is it safe to go to work or take the bus? How should we best attempt to answer such questions? Join us to discuss an interesting paper on TB transmission in Cape Town. You can access the paper here.
