Our Story

We joined forces in early 2018 to combine our research and experience, which we used to inform the September UN General Assembly meeting convened specifically to tackle this worldwide issue.

Members of our group are working at the forefront of tuberculosis research and treatment, in the UK and overseas, across various disciplines.

All UK-based academics and professionals with an interest in TB are welcome to be part of this inclusive group – please get in touch if you would like to join us.
