TBScience 2020

The 51st Union World Conference on Lung Health is pleased to announce that TBScience is now incorporated into the main conference programme, which is being held virtually for the first time this year. This is the third annual TBScience, 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.

Find out about the TBScience 2020 Scientific Committee.
