Our Mission Statement
Advance knowledge of the immune factors required for protection against M. tuberculosis in humans
Elucidate the functions and phenotypes of M.tb-specific T cell populations (classical and non-classical) using immunologic and computational approaches in collaborative human cohort studies.
Collaborate on other immune cell subsets or animal models if such studies extend the results of human studies.
Mycobacterium tuberculosis is the leading infectious cause of death worldwide.
Someone dies of tuberculosis (TB) every 17 seconds.
There is currently no vaccine that will stop the epidemic.
