$2.9 million grant to aid TB research at SLU

St. Louis, Mo (  KTRS ) A grant of almost $3 million has been given to help researchers at Saint Louis University study a new tuberculosis vaccine.

The $2.9 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation was announced Monday. SLU researcher Daniel Hoft will use the grant to study the role of a special subset of T cells in fighting TB.

Hoft says a new approach is needed because TB is becoming increasingly resistant to current therapies.

More than 1 million people worldwide die from tuberculosis each year.
