SATuRN's Featured Partner: New TB centre at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

Authors: Richard Lessells & Tulio de Oliveira

The TB Centre at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is a unique collaborative academic centre, representing the largest collection of researchers working on TB in Europe. Our internationally-recognised experts work across all aspects of global TB research from basic science in host and pathogen biology, through to clinical research including HIV/TB, MDR-TB, TB infection control and TB diagnostics, as well as epidemiology and public health, social science, financing and policy.

The TB Centre provides a focus for the School's long-established global research expertise in tuberculosis epidemiology, immunology, diagnosis and treatment. It will enable the development of enhanced international partnership, building on the success of 70 existing projects collaborating in more than 40 countries including the UK, South Africa, Uganda, Senegal, Malawi, India, Pakistan, China, Peru, and South Korea.


As can be seen on the website, the LSHTM TB Centre has scientists working and collaborating throughout Southern Africa (25 projects in South Africa alone).

SATuRN is one of the collaborating projects at the TB LSHTM site and this year members of the centre will present at SATuRN annual drug resistance workshop in Cape Town 28-29 Nov 2012.
