The NIAID TB Portals Program is a multi-national collaboration for tuberculosis (TB) data sharing and analysis to advance TB research.

As a global consortium of clinicians, scientists, and IT professionals, we built the TB Portals, a web-based, open-access repository of multi-domain TB data and tools for its analysis. Here, you can find linked socioeconomic/geographic, clinical, laboratory, radiological, and genomic data from over international TB patient cases.

You can explore and analyze these data through any of our tools, focusing on only one domain or across all of them. TB Portals data are also available for download to support your own research.

Collaboration with clinical and research partners is a key part of our program. Twenty country sites in Eastern Europe, Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa are sharing data through the TB Portals.

We also engage with academic and private partners on research and software development projects, focusing on TB genomics, radiomics, and data science.

The TB Portals Program is a growing global program. We have partner country sites and other sites actively contributing data in Asia, Africa, and Eastern Europe. Our scientists are involved in additional scientific collaborations around the world as well.

program objectives

Make TB data available to stimulate new research and explore new avenues for medical care.

Bring added value to new and existing data by linking disparate datasets and data types to link phenotypic, genotypic, clinical, radiographic, and other data.

Foster an international collaborative network dedicated to collection, distribution, and analysis of patient data to be used in TB research and treatment.
