On 11 September 2020, Troels Lillebæk gave his inaugural lecture 'Tuberculosis – the never ending story? From Molecular to Global Perspective'.
About the lecture: Despite vaccine, diagnostics and efficient inexpensive treatment for decades, tuberculosis (TB) remains the leading infectious killer worldwide. Even in Europe, high rates of multi-drug resistant TB in former Soviet Union countries is an imminent concern, and in the Danish Kingdom, Greenland continues to struggle with high rates of TB. At the same time, the welfare state Denmark experiences extraordinary high rates of TB among socially marginalised persons. It is a never ending story.
