In celebration of 100 years of the Medical Research Council (MRC), scientists at the University’s Institute of Infection and Global Health presented their work on brain infections, called Japanese encephalitis, in India and Nepal to a public audience at the Victoria Gallery and Museum. The film of their work shows photography taken by Liverpool researchers during their research trips to the region.
Professor Tom Solomon said: “Initial clinical symptoms of encephalitis can be subtle and therefore identifying the disease early can be difficult. With the support of the MRC we aim to raise awareness of the disease so that hospital doctors know what to look for when a patient comes in with suspected viral infection.”
