Kanury Rao of International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology in India is testing small molecule inhibitors of host proteins required for M. tuberculosis to survive and replicate within host cells.

This grant was selected through India's IKP Knowledge Park and their IKP-GCE program.
