​​​​​​​​​​​OUR RESEARCH

Our research involved the study of the fundamental biology of genetic material of both humans and organism to provide knowledge and build capacity that informs public health policy and practices. ​Our two main fields include tuberculosis (TB) and inherited genetic disorders​.​ Notably, these research efforts extend beyond the field of human disease into areas such as wildlife management and veterinary disease in the case of TB​. The quality of our research ​is further enhanced through national and international collaboration with world-class leaders in the field.
