LABORATORY BRANCH UPDATE

DTBE Laboratory Branch Forms Laboratory Capacity Team

Back to TB Notes

The structure and functions of the Laboratory Branch are depicted in the schematic here. The diagram shows three interlinked circles, one depicting each team. Boxes outside the circles describe each team’s functions. The Lab Capacity Team will continue to focus on oversight and provision of technical assistance for cooperative agreements; laboratory systems-related operational research to accelerate decline of tuberculosis; education and training to address professional workforce competency and capacity; and collaboration with internal and external partners. These functions complement the other two teams within the Laboratory Branch, the Reference Laboratory Team and the Applied Research Team to create an important positive synergy within the branch.
