Recruiting expertise to expand knowledge and treatment of tuberculosis
Return to Listing
Basic research on immunology and the development of immune cells in response to infectious disease is critical to developing new therapeutics and vaccines that can cure or prevent disease. One such communicable disease that continues to pose a threat to health in Wisconsin and the U.S. is tuberculosis, a very serious communicable disease that infects approximately nine million people worldwide, resulting in nearly two million deaths, each year. Trends show that an increase in drug-resistant cases of tuberculosis pose a threat locally, and globally.
Through this funding award, the Medical College of Wisconsin will recruit an innate immunologist to expand expertise in a critical area of infectious disease research and produce new knowledge in this field that can impact health outcomes in Wisconsin.
