We are pleased to announce that after much deliberation we have awarded two separate grants;
- Risk-benefit modelling of preventive therapy strategies to inform household contact management policies in high-burden countries- Courtney Yuen (Harvard and TB Program at Indus Hospital, Pakistan)
- Parameterising the kinetics of early disease in tuberculosis – Hanif Esmail (University of Cape Town)
Each was awarded ~US$50,000 (subject to contract) to begin a 12 month period of work. Both projects will be required to deliver international and in-country presentations as well as peer-review paper submissions, which will be made available on the TB MAC website.
Congratulations to you both on the quality of your applications in a very competitive year, we look forward to seeing the results of your work over the next 12 months.
