Flulapalooza mass vaccination
Flulapalooza 5 will be held in a large tent erected between Light Hall and Veteran's Administration Hospital. The free shots are available for all University and Medical Center faculty, staff, students and volunteers. Family members will not be included in this event. Last year more than 13,000 received the free shots during the 12-hour event. For maximum efficiency during the Flulapalooza event, please wear short sleeves and present your Vanderbilt ID badge. Supervisors should stagger staff participation in patient care areas so not too many staff members are away at once.
For information on how to protect yourself and your patients from influenza, check the Department of Infection Control & Prevention’s website.

The Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology presents Dr. Carl Nathan, Cornell Medical College: "Killing Persistent Mycobacterium tuberculosis"
Key Lecture Points:
· Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major medical problem. Tuberculosis is probably the most prevalent example of AMR and the single leading cause of death from bacterial infection.
· Host immunity can put Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) into a state of phenotypic resistance to conventional anti-infectives. Phenotypic drug resistance is an even bigger problem in TB than heritable drug resistance.
· We are seeking drugs that can kill phenotypically resistant Mtb.
· One novel approach is to inhibit, not protein synthesis, but protein breakdown. We identified the first agents that can inhibit the proteasome of a pathogen while sparing the proteasome of its host.
