theme of the conference

Tuberculosis remains an enormous burden to human health, even at the beginning of the 21st century. The situation is worsening in many countries, particularly due to the synergy with the HIV epidemic and the appearance of multi-drug resistant (MDR) or extensively-drug resistant (XDR) tuberculosis. The urgently needed development of new tools that can improve the diagnosis, prevention and/or therapy of tuberculosis and other major mycobacterial diseases depends largely on the progress made by basic and applied research.

The EMBO conference series "Tuberculosis 2012" was an international congress that provided a premium forum for the discussion and exchange of the recent advances of current research and novel trends related to tuberculosis, its causative agent Mycobacterium tuberculosis and related pathogenic mycobacteria. This international meeting was held from September 11-15, 2012, in the Conference centre (CIS) within the campus of the Institut Pasteur. There were more than 600 scientists attending the meeting.
