The event will take place in central London on Tuesday, 24th March, coinciding with other activities worldwide.
UKAPTB members are involved in running the symposium, which provides the London tuberculosis community with the opportunity to gather and hear about the latest research in the fight against the world’s deadliest infectious disease.
Three UKAPTB member organisations joined forces on 22nd March 2019 to host a World TB Day symposium featuring talks from a wide range of tuberculosis researchers.
The symposium attracted a packed house of over 300 attendees who came to hear over 20 speakers present and discuss their work. Now in its tenth year, the symposium, co-organised by UCL, LSHTM and this year’s hosts, the Francis Crick Institute, gives the TB community an annual opportunity to catch up on the latest research, and with each other!
UCL’s Neil Stoker was among those who managed to attend both events. Neil has written a fascinating blog which summarises key messages and his personal reflections from the APPG-TB reception and London symposium.
Three local MPs, Dame Louise Ellman (Liverpool Riverside), Angela Eagle (Wallasey) and Dan Carden (Liverpool Walton), were joined by All Party Parliamentary Group on Global TB co-chair Nick Herbert (Arundel and South Downs).
