"Role of Zinc in Tuberculosis" by Sladjana Prisic, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Microbiology, College of Natural Sciences, University of Hawaii at Manoa. Abstract: Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis, encounters varied zinc concentrations during infection. We hypothesize that changes in zinc availability have a dramatic impact on bacterial physiology and thus create distinct bacterial subpopulations. Our goal is to understand a role of zinc in pathogenesis, which will allow new treatment options.
