In this Grand Rounds, three global leaders in tuberculosis will describe UCSF’s pivotal role in combating the tuberculosis (TB) epidemic and some key innovations in this critical area of medicine and public health. We will cover global and domestic trends in epidemiology, new developments in diagnosis, prevention, and care, and the latest guidelines and policies shaping TB management worldwide.
