Understanding immune response to tuberculosis infection to help design new vaccines

This study will determine if the protein antigens in two candidate tuberculosis (TB) vaccines that are protective against experimental TB infection are recognised by the T cell immune responses in Indonesian TB patients. This is an essential step in the selection of these vaccines for development as new TB vaccines for the prevention of TB. The project will facilitate the transfer of immunological assays from Sydney to UGM for assessment of human T cell responses.
