Snakebitten’: Tale of the serpent | Prof Nick Casewell | TEDxLSTM
Nick Casewell is a Wellcome Trust and Royal Society Sir Henry Dale Fellow based at the Centre for Snakebite Research & Interventions at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. Nick's research focuses on understanding the processes that generate toxin variation in the venoms of snakes, and how this knowledge can be applied to inform the design and development of new therapies for treating the world's snakebite victims. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
