Application Window Has Closed

On behalf of the Global Tuberculosis Community Advisory Board (TB CAB), we’re excited to announce a call for new member applications.

The TB CAB is inviting applications from diverse individuals to join its group of strong, research-literate activists from TB-affected communities and networks from across the globe. If you are interested in engaging with TB scientists, research institutions, product sponsors, and in promoting access to the benefits of TB research, please consider applying to become a member of the TB CAB.

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


What is the TB CAB?

Founded in 2011, the TB CAB is dedicated to increasing community involvement in TB research and to mobilizing 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; and provides input on study design, early access, regulatory approval, post marketing, and implementation strategies.

Members are compensated for their time and TAG covers all TB CAB-related travel and teleconferencing expenses so that participation is cost-neutral. TB CAB members serve as individuals, not in their capacity as members of, or representatives to, any organization or other affiliation.
