SPRINT TB Inaugural Annual Symposium Advances in Tuberculosis Therapy Research

SPRINT TB Inaugural Annual Symposium Advances in Tuberculosis Therapy Research


SPRINT-TB is a translational bench-to-bedside research programme uniting clinicians and scientists working in tuberculosis (TB) research, with the aim of improving medicines and approaches to treat and eradicate this high-priority infectious disease. SPRINT-TB is based at National University of Singapore and brings together TB researchers in Singapore, with collaborators across South East Asia, Europe and America. The programme started in 2014 and is supported by the Singapore National Research Foundation under its Translational and Clinical Research (TCR) Flagship Programme administered by the Singapore Ministry of Health’s National Medical Research Council.

The SPRINT-TB Inaugural Annual Symposium: Advances in Tuberculosis Therapy Research is the first in the series of symposiums that SPRINT-TB will host annually, each year featuring renowned scientists, clinicians and key opinion leaders in TB. This year's symposium programme will include talks on mycobacterial targets, new TB drug candidates, clinical trials of novel TB treatment regimens, and public health.
