Pulmonary Infections and Tuberculosis Assembly

Do you ever find yourself looking longingly into a sealed sputum cup, wondering what might be hiding inside?

Do you ever wake up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night thinking about new ways to classify pneumonia?

Have you ever been caught in the middle of rounds looking up exotic tic-borne diseases that could explain your patient's presentation?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, the Assembly on Pulmonary Infections and Tuberculosis (PI-TB) might just be the place for you. We bring together researchers and clinicians studying every aspect of host/pathogen interaction, from HIV to TB, the microbiome to molecular diagnostics, all while traveling the globe stamping out disease one rogue bacterium at a time. If you've ever looked up how to treat CAP or diagnose TB, you've already seen our members in action. We're always looking for new recruits in the War on Contagion, so drop us a line and say hello.
