Background on Team

Dr. Suman Laal, an associate professor at the NYU School of Medicine, developed a simple point-of-care diagnostic test that can be administered to tuberculosis patients in developing countries. TB Biosciences' technology is easy to use, so individuals with minimal training can help patients get the support they need. In 2013, TB Biosciences raised seed funding from a syndicate of investors that includes the NYU Innovation Venture Fund.
