Dr. Aldridge appeared on SftPublic’s Contemporary Science Issues and Innovations December 10, 2013. On that program, How TB Bacteria Evade Treatment she discussed the scientific advances in understanding tuberculosis bacteria –to which she has contributed greatly– and how these extraordinary microbes manage to outwit efforts to conquer the disease. In this bio clip she talks about her dual background, the fascination of this area of research, and the challenges of this work and of doing science today.
