Portland Scientists Awarded $3M for Tuberculosis Vaccine Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Feb 01, 2016

Oregon Health and Science University has received $3 million for tuberculosis treatment research.

Tuberculosis is the number one cause of death by infectious disease around the world. In 2014, this contagious bacterial infection was responsible for 1.5 million deaths worldwide. Although the disease is treatable and curable, it still persists as a global health problem that scientists continue to study, to develop new and improved treatments. 

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation recently granted scientists from the Oregon Health and Science University $3 million to research potential vaccines for tuberculosis
