The Union World Conference on Lung Health will also host TBScience 2023 to focus on basic and translational TB research. The 6th edition of TBScience, an official event entirely devoted to basic and translational TB research. After three years of virtual conference format, TBScience will be held in-person during the Union Conference between 8-11 November 2023.
TBScience brings together scientists from the fields of microbiology, immunology, molecular biology, pharmacology, epidemiology and mathematical modelling to present and discuss recent findings on TB transmission, infection and disease. TBScience has been a very popular addition to The Union World Conference on Lung Health. In fact, in the first year of its launch, TBScience 2018 was sold out four months prior to the meeting itself. Attendance to the consecutive editions of TBScience in 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 has shown remarkable growth, in some years with over 100% increase compared to the year before.
