Mycobacterium tuberculosis in a cholesterol and fatty acid rich environment: global response to dormancy and antibiotic resistance (01W01514)

Little is still known on the role of lipids in the survival of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The general objective of this research project is to determine and analyze the global genetic expression of M. tuberculosis and to evaluate its drug susceptibility in an in vitro latency model in the presence of lipids cholesterol and fatty acids.
