Virtual Workshop: Recognition and Control of Mtb Infected Cells: From Basics to the Clinic | 13 – 14June 2023


The Stop TB Partnership Working Group on New TB Vaccines (WGNV) and the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)are co-hosting a workshop on the topic of Recognition and Control of Mtb Infected Cells: From Basics to the Clinic. This workshop is intended to address the need for correlates and to identify platforms that measure recognition or control of the infected cell - especially in humans - as identified in the EDCTP/AIGHD Global Roadmap for Research and Development of New TB Vaccines and the Strategic Framework for New TB Vaccines in the Stop TB Partnership Global Plan to End TB 2023 - 2030. 

The overall goals of this workshop are to: 

  • elucidate the mechanisms by which the immune system recognizes the Mtb-infected cell 
  • explore the degree to which such recognition can lead to control of the intracellular microbe, and 
  • discuss the translational implications of these observations 

The workshop format will be largely discussion-based. Each session will have three short presentations that will provide a high-level overview of key topics within the session theme, followed by a discussion between the session chairs, speakers, and participants.

This workshop is free of charge and open to any participants interested in this topic.
