St George’s team joins global consortium to tackle links between TB and diabetes

St George’s researchers have joined a new research consortium aiming to investigate the link between tuberculosis and diabetes, to develop better treatments for both diseases.

The TANDEM project – which is coordinated by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine – is a four-year collaborative research and innovation scheme that will provide new evidence on the links between diabetes and TB. This should lead to better strategies to control both diseases and improve patient care.
