The Center for Airborne Pathogen Research and Tuberculosis Imaging (CAPRI) is a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional organization that combines the expertise of researchers that investigate pathogens that are principally transmitted via an aerosol route.
Within this Center are experts with animal and molecular pathogenesis models as well as technology and instrumentation to perform cutting edge research. Particularly unique to the Center is the application of this technology to high containment agents and extensive experience with the Madison Chamber aerosol delivery system.
This center is also the home of the innovative Tuberculosis Imaging Resources project to develop real-time optical imaging solutions for tuberculosis and make them accessible to the scientific community. The primary rationale and goals of the Center are to provide valuable resources, technology and collaborations that foster unique opportunities in research and education.
