We are inviting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computational Immunology to conduct research on a large project aimed at understanding the pathogenesis of subclinical TB and identifying immune correlates of protection against TB. The project is part of an international effort to discover immune correlates of protection against TB in the context of two phase 2b clinical trials of TB vaccination that demonstrated protection. Closing date 15 September 2020
Associate Professor Elisa Nemes has co-authored a paper titled "Targeting Unconventional Host Components for Vaccination-Induced Protection Against TB" appearing in the Frontiers in Immunology Journal.
Professor Mark Hatherill has co-authored a research paper titled "Immune serum-activated human macrophages coordinate with eosinophils to immobilize Ascaris suum larvae" appearing in the Parasite Immunology Journal.
SATVI researchers Eric Wekasa Bunyasi, Mark Hatherill, Humphrey Mulenga, Angelique Luabeya, Justin Shenje, Simon Mendelsohn, Elisa Nemes and Tom Scriba have published a research paper titled "Regional changes in tuberculosis disease burden among adolescents in South Africa (2005–2015)" appearing in the PLOS ONE journal.
