The University of Lincoln Institute for Advanced Studies is delighted to invite you to Professor Frank Tanser’s Inaugural Lecture.

The lecture will provide insights into the course of the HIV epidemic primarily through the work Prof Tanser has undertaken since 1997 in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa. The province is widely considered to be at the epicentre of the global HIV pandemic. Much of his work has focused on a longitudinal cohort of 90,000 individuals in a rural community that has been particularly affected by the disease. The lecture will focus particularly on Prof Tanser’s special interest which is the space-time evolution of infectious disease epidemics.

The details of the lecture are as follows:

7th July 2021
