Striving to solve the global challenge of tuberculosis

Our Mission

The Tuberculosis Research Group at Albert Einstein College of Medicine is dedicated to a better understanding of the mechanisms by which Mycobacterium tuberculosis causes tuberculosis (TB), to developing new tools to provide faster diagnosis, and more reliable treatment, and to creating better vaccines.

As a team of diverse expertise, we use a multipronged approach to study bacterial physiology, its interaction with host, and host responses to bacteria and to apply this knowledge into developing tools in the fight against tuberculosis.
