The University of Oxford provides open education resources free for reuse, remixing and redistribution in education worldwide. These resources are available in the form of podcasts on different topics/disciplines.
The series of podcasts on Epidemics and Vaccines detail the research within the Nuffield Department of Medicine to combat diseases such as hepatitis, influenza and tuberculosis, through development of novel vaccines and vaccine delivery mechanisms and strategies.
Vaccines save millions of lives each year; however, some of the world's worst diseases are still difficult to prevent. Developing countries and vulnerable populations are a particular focus of some of this work.
The list of videos in the Epidemics and Vaccines series include (just click on the titles to open the videos):
- Virus entry
- Tuberculous meningitis
