Global Tuberculosis Community Advisory Board calls for new members

The Global Tuberculosis Advisory Board (TB CAB) is calling for applications to join their group of strong, research-literate community activists from TB-affected communities and networks.

Founded in 2011, TB CAB is dedicated to increasing community involvement in TB research and to mobilising political will regarding key TB product development and access issues. The TB CAB acts in an advisory capacity to product developers and institutions conducting clinical trials of new TB drugs, regimens, diagnostics and vaccines. It provides input on study design, early access, regulatory approval, post marketing, and implementation strategies.

Applicants do not need to be experts in TB science, but need to bring strong interest in gaining scientific knowledge to become community experts in research and development for TB diagnostics, vaccines, and therapeutics; study and trial design review; or regulatory and other processes and factors that affect access to TB innovations.
