TBnet webinar April 2023

We welcome you to the TBnet monthly webinar titled “A species-level strategy to reveal novel antibiotic resistance mechanisms” on April 27, 2023, at 4 PM (CEST).

Join us on Zoom!

Meeting ID: 851 1300 4720

Passcode: 650251



Luiz Pedro Sório de Carvalho, Ph.D

Professor, Department of Chemistry, Wertheim UF Scripps Institute for Biomedical Innovation & Technology, Jupiter, USA, Visiting Group Leader, The Francis Crick Institute, London, UK

His research interests:

“Our research is focused on illuminating the relationship between phenotypes, small molecules (metabolites and drugs) and enzymes in mycobacteria. The goal of our research is to elevate our understanding of mycobacterial biochemistry and metabolic networks and facilitate the discovery of novel transformative therapies.”

Expert panel:

Jérôme Nigou, PhD

Group Leader Institute of Pharmacology and Structural Biology, CNRS - University of Toulouse

His research interests:

“My main research objectives are to decipher the molecular cross-talk that establishes during infection between Mycobacterium tuberculosis and innate immune cells, with a special focus on the role played by lipids and glycoconjugates. I also aim at translating this fundamental knowledge into new diagnostic, therapeutic or preventive strategies/tools to be explored.”

Raquel Villar Hernandez, PhD

Scientist at GenID GmbH, Straßberg, Germany

Her research Interests:

“I am working in the development and evaluation of EliSpot based diagnostic tests for different infections such as tuberculosis, non-tuberculous mycobacteria and SARS-CoV-2.“


Olena Rzhepishevska, PhD, Scientist

Department of Chemistry/ Department of clinical Microbiology, Umeå University, Sweden

Her research interests:

“I am a microbiologist/molecular biologist. In the recent years, she is using metabolomics as the main tool for understanding the interaction between bacteria as well as host-pathogen interaction during bacterial infections - including tuberculosis.”
