The Institute for Tuberculosis Research is comprised of approximately 30 individuals: biologists, chemists, pharmacologists and support staff -  all working towards a single goal - the discovery of new drugs for tuberculosis.

We come from Austria, Brazil, China, Germany, India, Iran, Korea, Netherlands, Romania, Russia, Thailand, U.S. and Vietnam.

Our group includes faculty (5), affiliate faculty (3), adjunct faculty (2), BS, MS and PhD staff scientists (8), graduate students (6) and support staff (2 full-time, 5 part-time). We occupy 4,000 sq. ft. of labs and offices in the College of Pharmacy.

Our work is supported by the Global Alliance for TB Drug Development, the National Institutes of Health, fee-for-service arrangements from industry and a patent royalty stream. In 2006 we received over one million dollars in grants and contracts.
