[Perspectives] Leo Martinez: striving to end childhood tuberculosis

Not only can Leo Martinez work opponents on the chess board—he began playing aged 8 and reached national level—he’s also a talented scientist who was awarded the 2017 Stephen Lawn TB-HIV Research Leadership Prize for his contributions to reducing the burden of tuberculosis (TB) and HIV/AIDS in Africa. “Leo has done outstanding innovative research on reducing the childhood TB burden—a much needed and underappreciated area”, says Professor Heather Zar, Chair of the Department of Paediatrics and Director of the MRC Unit on Child & Adolescent Health at the University of Cape Town in South Africa.
