EMI Special Topic-TB will focus on the characterization of TB which remains an unacceptable burden of human suffering and loss, overwhelmingly borne by poor and vulnerable people living in low- or middle-income countries. Progress in global TB control is, however, constrained by the lack of highly effective and widely accessible diagnostics, drugs and vaccines. EMI Special Topic-TB welcomes research reports and high quality reviews on the following areas of TB research: epidemiology, fundamental research, development of new diagnostics and biomarkers, development of new drugs and vaccines, and public health issues related to this important pathogen.
