The Centre has made significant contributions in different areas of research on tuberculosis including the immunology and molecular biology. The World Health Organization (WHO) has designated TRC as a collaborating centre for tuberculosis control programme in India. Many of the research findings of the Centre have received worldwide recognition and had significant impact on the formulation of tuberculosis control programmes in Asia, Africa, South America and some parts of Europe. The Centre imparts training in laboratory diagnosis and controlled clinical trials of tuberculosis. It is also actively engaged in evolving comprehensive methodologies for strengthening the case-finding and case-holding components of National Tuberculosis Control Programme.
