SA Research Chair in Animal Tuberculosis (TB)

​The Chair leads the Animal TB Group in investigating various aspects of animal tuberculosis affecting livestock and wildlife. The research programme aims to increase knowledge and develop tools to understand comparative disease pathogenesis and host immune responses, identify novel biomarkers for detection of infection and disease, improve diagnostic techniques, and explore the diversity, epidemiology, and the​ implications and role of TB in ecosystems and at animal-human interfaces. One major focus is the development of molecular and cellular techniques that can detect infection and disease in animals. Strategies to effectively prevent the spread of disease are lacking for most species and require advanced ​accurate diagnostic tools.
