ACTnet will assist with the development and implementation of multi-centre research proposals for clinical tuberculosis research in Australia and New Zealand.
We have established relationships with the Australian Respiratory Council, Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand, Australian Infectious Diseases Society, National Tuberculosis Advisory Committee as well as national and state government and health.
Any proposed research will be taken to ACTnet's Steering Committee to be endorsed, after which we can assist in the implementation of that research and connect investigators with other ACTnet contacts for the possibility of expanding the scope of the study.
ACTnet seeks to offer its endorsement to research projects that align with ACTnet's goals. Proposals will be assessed every 6 months by members of the ACTnet Steering Committee.
