Day 1 of the workshop will examine “Cause and Effect” of mycobacterial infections
Session I will explore pathology across species, including persistence, chronic and latent disease, and host/pathogen variability
Session II will evaluate animal models in current use for testing of drugs and vaccines
Day 2 of the workshop will provide an in-depth discussion of currently available or needed “Tools” for research. Discussion will also include a summary of NIAID funding opportunities, preclinical services, bioinformatics and sequencing services as well as Biochemical Reagents. This will be an opportunity for the community to provide input into services that are needed to help advance key research directions in mycobacterial infections/disease.
