Help Stop TB Researchers Welcome New Team Member

Summary
Meet the newest member of the Help Stop TB research team, who will be helping with the project’s data analysis.


Background

The Help Stop TB project was created to study the sheath of the bacterium that causes tuberculosis, in order to help scientists look for better treatments.

In 2018, approximately 10 million people contracted tuberculosis, and 1.5 million people died. And in a recent publication, the World Health Organization stated, "Between 2020 and 2025 an additional 1.4 million TB deaths could be registered as direct consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic."

Welcome, Marko!

Since our last update, we’ve had a new addition to the project team!

Marko Hanževački has come to us from beautiful Croatia via Erlangen in Germany, where he recently completed his PhD thesis. He has high-level expertise in molecular dynamics and in enhanced sampling methods, including a range of computational analytical expertise that will come in useful for the next stages of the Help Stop TB project.

He’s already got stuck into work here and is shown below helping out on one of our recent outreach events, “Science in the Park,” sporting one of our “Sustainable Process Technologies” research group T-shirts.
