Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis (TB) is second only to HIV/AIDS as the greatest killer worldwide due to a single infectious agent. In 2012, 8.6 million people fell ill with TB and 1.3 million died from TB.

The latest UK annual TB report shows that rates of TB have stabilised in the UK over the past seven years, following the increase in the incidence from 1990 to 2005. However, despite considerable efforts to improve TB prevention, treatment and control, the incidence of TB in the UK remains high compared to most other Western European countries.

UCL-TB aims to facilitate UCL's impact on national and global tuberculosis elimination by coordinating ground-breaking, cross-disciplinary TB research across UCL and increasing synergy internally and externally.
