 Our Purpose

The Centre of Research Excellence in Tuberculosis Control on Both Sides of our Border is an interdisciplinary Centre of Research Excellence funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council over 5 years. The TB-CRE supports world-class research aimed to improve TB control in Australia and our region through new and existing research initiatives on public health and clinical interventions, epidemiological studies and laboratory science approaches to provide new tools for TB control and prevention.


The next generation of tuberculosis researchers will be fostered in the national and international collaborations of the Centre, that include Chief Investigators at the University of Sydney, University of New South Wales, University of Melbourne and James Cook University, as well as the Centenary Institute and Woolcock Institute of Medical Research.
