Welcome to TBRU-ASTRa

Tuberculosis is one of the world’s deadliest diseases, infecting one third of the world’s population. A sustained effort in TB research is necessary to better understand and manage the disease.

The TBRU-ASTRa team hopes that this website will be informative for scientists, teachers, students, journalists and others interested in gaining a deeper understanding of our tuberculosis research.
