Tuberculosis Epidemiologic Studies Consortium (TBESC)

Return to TBESC Main Menu


The Division of Tuberculosis Elimination (DTBE) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the Tuberculosis Epidemiologic Studies Consortium (TBESC) in order to strengthen, focus, and coordinate tuberculosis (TB) research. The TBESC is designed to build the scientific research capacities of state and metropolitan TB control programs, participating laboratories, academic institutions, hospitals, and both non- and for-profit organizations. It operates within an environment that fosters creative and open intellectual input. The research agenda is developed through a process of mutually negotiated scientific and programmatic peer review. It is guided by a national, comprehensive research agenda responsive to the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) report, Ending Neglect: The Elimination of Tuberculosis in the United States (2000), CDC’s Response to the IOM Report, and DTBE’s priorities.

TBESC Staff:

Denise Garrett, MD, MSc, Project Officer
Sandra Baxley, Public Health Analyst
Suzanne Beavers, MD, Senior Epidemiologist
Dolly Katz, Ph.D., MPH, Senior Epidemiologist
Brian Sizemore, MBA, TBESC Project Manager
