Working Groups

One of the things we focus on as part of our mission to connect researchers across disciplines is the creation of global and regional working groups. These working groups build connections and relationships among scientists and experts who can then work together to create new research projects, breathe new life into old ideas, and work in a cross-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary manner to better improve the efficiency of our work.

Two of our largest working groups are global groups working to study tuberculosis. There are of course other groups studying tuberculosis, but none of them have achieved the soft of multi-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary networking that is our focus. We have worked to forge bonds between researchers, treating physicians, public health officials, nongovernmental organizations, scientific networks, and other relevant groups. These networks have helped lead to new breakthroughs in the prevention and treatment of tuberculosis outbreaks.

Other working groups are available to linke stakeholders interested in basic immunology, virology, respiratory infections, maternal immunization, and pediatric emergency. We plan to create more working groups in the near future. If you are interested in being the chair of a new working group or helping to get a new working group started, please contact us.

Some of the working groups have looked into having facilities built just for their collaborative work. Because of the nature of our work, we need custom-designed, custom-built workspaces. Buffalo Home Builder is great for that sort of thing.
