University of Washington — Tuberculosis Research

University of Washington
Award Date:
To support research on designing novel TB vaccines.

Open Philanthropy recommended a gift of $1,425,475 over three years to the University of Washington to support work led by Professor Chetan Seshadri analyzing T-cell receptors derived from individuals resistant to tuberculosis (TB) as leads for designing novel TB vaccines.

Open Philanthropy’s science team believes that this work will also be broadly relevant to scientific tools, immunology, and tuberculosis vaccines.

This follows Open Philanthropy’s February 2023 support and falls within its focus area of scientific research, specifically within its interest in transformative basic science.
