The Union is pleased to host the second annual TBScience pre-conference, an official event entirely devoted to basic and translational tuberculosis (TB) research.
TBScience brings together scientists from microbiology, immunology, molecular biology, pharmacology, epidemiology and mathematical modelling to present and discuss recent findings on TB transmission, infection and disease. Additional focus is also given to the development of better vaccines, new drugs and diagnostics for TB.
