The 52nd Union World Conference On Lung Health

19 - 22 October 2021

With a focus on basic and translational TB research, TBScience has been a very popular addition to The Union World Conference on Lung Health.

TBScience brings together scientists from microbiology, immunology, molecular biology, pharmacology, epidemiology and mathematical modeling to present and discuss recent findings on TB transmission, infection and disease. Additional focus is also given to the development of better vaccines, new drugs and diagnostics for TB. More specifically, below are the themes for TBScience 2021:

Tools to guide personalised therapy - what is achievable?

Recent innovations in trial design, lessons for the TB community. Where does TB treatment innovation go from here?

Bioaerosols: Threats and opportunities

TB vaccines: Aspiring is not enough!


TBScience 2021 will be accessible to all delegates and has been integrated into the main conference which will be held virtually between 19-22 October 2021. View TBScience Programme.


Registration for the 52nd Union World Conference on Lung Health will be open until 22 October 2021 (last date of the conference). Registered participants will gain unlimited access to TBScience and programme session.
