With an ever expanding use for BCG in the clinical setting, there is still a need to better understand how it works as a vaccine against infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. We are developing new tuberculosis vaccines, but we still do not know how it works. The small animal models have been used extensively to address these issues and the talk will focus on the work my lab has performed to better understand mechanisms of protective immunity induced by BCG.
