Hvert år dør nesten 14 millioner mennesker av infeksjonssykdommer. Den største andelen skyldes luftveisinfeksjoner. Dette er rammen for fredagsforelesningen 16. mai som holdes av Terje Espevik ved Senter for Molekylær Inflammasjonsforskning (CEMIR). Bibliotek for medisin og helse anbefaler hver uke et utvalg bøker som er aktuelle for temaet til fredagsforelesninga. Se program for alle fredagsforelesningene her.
