About the topic: The WHO End TB strategy aims for an 80% drop in new TB cases by 2030, but with an estimated one-third of the world’s population infected, this ambitious goal will require dramatic innovation in diagnostics, therapeutics, and service delivery. We will highlight how BC is approaching the problem using innovative approaches from big data to genome sequencing.
