Lab Culture Ep. 28: Scientists in Oregon and Michigan Honor World TB Day

One scientist is working at the lab bench. Another scientist is working at her computer. The World TB Day logo is below.

Every year we commemorate World TB Day on March 24, the anniversary of the day Dr. Robert Koch first announced that he discovered Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacillus that causes TB. This World TB Day, we are sharing an insightful conversation between two TB laboratory leaders: Angie Schooley, B.S. MT(ASCP), Mycobacteriology/Mycology Unit Manager, Michigan Department of Health & Human Services  and Caitlin Miranda, M(ASCP), Microbiologist III, Oregon State Public Health Laboratory. (In the photo above, Caitlin is pictured on the left and Angie is pictured on the right.)
