Centre for Tuberculosis Research
Tuberculosis is one of the most common infectious diseases in the world, and the hope is that the new research centre will contribute to better diagnostic methods, vaccines and treatments. The aim of the centre is to improve collaboration between the departments and strengthen the university's position in the field of TB research, both in Sweden and internationally.
