Comparison of T cell gene expression in latent M. tuberculosis infection (LTBI) and disease

Dr. Marc Jacobsen (Bernhard-Nocht-Institut, AG Dr. Jacobsen)

We use mRNA expression profiling in T cells from TB patients, healthy latently M. tuberculosis infected and non-infected contacts to identify biomarkers of susceptibility against TB.
