The aim of this symposium is to mobilize the rigor, creativity and forward-momentum of scientists worldwide to discover and develop new tools that will end the TB epidemic. A few unique features of this conference include sessions that will explore advances across the ecosystem from early discovery through translation and real-world application, as well as sessions that address scientific bottlenecks to be overcome in the search for new tools to prevent, diagnose and definitively cure TB. Finally, the conference will include sessions dedicated to lessons learned from leprosy. There will be numerous opportunities for scientists to catalyze scientific advances that address the global burden of TB.
