out the importance of TB research and establishing partnerships with countries that have high levels of this devastating disease," he says.

"In Vietnam, tuberculosis most often affects the poor. If we can develop better ways of combatting this disease, then it will make a real difference to those who are least able to afford it."

"My wife, who is a GP working at an international clinic, and I are grateful that we are in positions to make a difference to such a major health problem."

Centenary Institute is also conducting a genetic study in China, another country with a high incidence of TB.

Dr Magda Ellis is analysing thousands of genetic samples for the biggest genome-wide study of TB patients ever conducted in Asia, which will complement the work being done in Vietnam.

"TB is a global disease that requires global solutions, "Professor Mathew Vadas, the Director of the Centenary Institute says, "Greg's efforts in Vietnam complement our other genetic study in China and of course, our core team here in Sydney working on new drugs and vaccines for TB."
