World TB Day

On 24th March each year, the world commemorates the day in 1882 when Dr Robert Koch announced his discovery of Mycobacterium tuberculosis as the causative agent of tuberculosis.

We have taken this opportunity to host a one-day symposium March every year since 2010, to highlight contemporary TB research, control measures and policy initiatives, and to discuss future challenges.

Our aim is to connect with all the people in London who work on, or are affected by TB: researchers; people in surveillance, control and policy; those in diagnostics and patient care; and affected patients and communities.

Since 2014, we have partnered with the LSHTM TB Centre, since 2018 with The Crick Institute, and from 2020 with Birkbeck College.
