NIAID offers an intensive three-year physicians' Infectious Diseases Training Program to produce investigators in clinical, basic, or translational research. These programs offer exposure to and insight into the science and management of mycobacterial diseases. They will increase the cadre of investigators with medical training to help identify and answer complex questions in the area of host/pathogen interactions in TB and other mycobacterial diseases.
Recognizing that disease knows no borders, NIAID has developed a global TB research agenda. A concerted global effort will require collaborations with sister agencies and other organizations with similar goals, such as the Global Alliance for TB Drug Development and the STOP TB initiative, as well as partnerships with governments and scientists from countries where the burden of tuberculosis is greatest.
