We invite you to join us for an informative talk on emerging infectious diseases and the role that bats may play in their transmission. The talk will be presented by Dr. Paul Webala, a Senior Lecturer and Mammologist at Maasai Mara University and a collaborator with members of the Department of Medical Microbiology & Immunology and KAVI-Institute of Clinical Research. 

The virtual talk will take place on Friday, the 17th of March, from 7:00-8:00AM and  Dr. Webala's presentation will explore the fascinating relationship between bats and infectious diseases and whether they are being unfairly implicated as carriers of deadly viruses.

With his expertise in Mammalogy and Conservation Biology, Dr. Webala will offer a unique perspective on this important topic. He has conducted extensive research on bats and their role in ecosystems, and his work has been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals.

The talk will be an opportunity to learn about the latest research on emerging infectious diseases and the potential role of bats in their spread. It will also provide a platform for discussion and dialogue among researchers, healthcare professionals, and anyone interested.

We look forward to seeing you there and learning from Dr. Paul Webala's expertise on this important topic.
