feedback from the meeting:

I liked learning about “all” the different angles of TB and meeting people busy fighting TB” commented a delegate at Euroscicon’s 2014 TB Summit. This exciting 3 day event explored the Prevention, Detection and Treatment of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. The Chairmen for each day of the Summit were Dr Derek Sloan (Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine), Professor Philip Hill, (Centre for International Health, New Zealand) and Dr. Sanjib Bhakta (Birkbeck, University of London and UCL), respectively.

Delegates liked the interesting talks, the interaction with speakers and felt the meeting provided a good opportunity to network. They said the event was well planned and that there was a broad coverage of topics (including information on human and animal TB and both molecular and epidemiological studies). They liked the venue and commented that the meeting was well organised.
