On November 15th, 2023, IBHH Assistant Professor Dr. Stephen Molldrem and collaborators published findings from a study of tuberculosis (TB) stakeholders in Botswana. The research used interviews, deliberative dialogues, and an animated video series created by the team to understand participants’ views about the potential scale-up of next-generation whole genome sequencing (NG-WGS) technology into the national TB program. The research was funded by an NIH bioethics supplement award to an R01 grant (PI: Sanghyuk S. Shin, UC, Irvine; R01AI147336), with additional support from IBHH and the UTMB Department of Global Health and Emerging Diseases.
