Tuberculosis (TB) is a chronic infectious disease that is responsible for approximately 2 million deaths worldwide each year. A hallmark of TB infection is the long term asymptomatic latent period which can progress to active disease years or decades after exposure. Accordingly, it can be challenging to identify the source of infection and interrupt transmission. I plan to talk about capturing latency and reinfection in mathematical models of TB transmission, including parameter estimation and implications of underlying assumptions.
