Maenetje’s research project looks at the responses against Mycobacterium tuberculosis which will provide a roadmap for the development of new TB vaccines or immunotherapies aimed at preventing latent TB reactivation and TB disease. The project aims to gain insight into the functional information contained within specific sequences of genes in cells associated with optimal intracellular inhibition of TB.
