But there’s a “plague” that causes an estimated 1.3 million deaths per year that researchers, including those at Institute for Systems Biology, are dedicated to tackling: tuberculosis. On Tuesday, Feb. 10, PBS will feature an “American Experience” film “The Forgotten Plague” on the history of tuberculosis and how difficult it has been to eradicate this disease.
