World TB Day annually raises awareness about the infectious lung disease tuberculosis, which kills some 1.5 million people each year, mainly in developing countries. The global event marks Dr. Robert Koch’s discovery of Mycobacterium tuberculosis as the cause of TB on March 24, 1882. Koch was a German physician known as the founder of modern bacteriology; he won a Nobel Prize for his work. High-school students who visit CSU for World TB Day are immersed in the science of microbiology and its application to infectious disease. They gain an inside look at modern efforts to control TB through hands-on activities with investigators in the Mycobacteria Research Laboratories. The day is fascinating for students who want to pursue health, medicine, and STEM fields, and especially for juniors in the college search process.
