Developing a Vaccine for Tuberculosis 

Immune evasion by infectious pathogens complicates the development of new vaccines. 

Despite advances in vaccine technology, there are still no vaccines against some infectious diseases, including tuberculosis, HIV, and malaria. Infectious pathogens underlying these diseases evade and alter host immune responses, making vaccine development difficult. In this webinar, Jyothi Rengarajan will discuss how Mycobacterium tuberculosis undermines innate and adaptive immunity and how understanding interactions between this pathogen and the immune system could lead to better tuberculosis vaccines.

Topics to be covered

  • Mechanisms through which Mycobacterium tuberculosis evades the immune system
  • Challenges in tuberculosis vaccine development 

Thursday, April 27th, 2023 | 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time
This webinar will be available to view live and on demand.
