The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) was on Tuesday awarded the International Kochon Prize 2017 for encouraging research and development (R&D) efforts towards tuberculosis treatment.

ICMR received the $65,000 award from the Kochon Foundation, a non-profit organisation from Korea, for establishing the India TB Research Consortium to accelerate R&D efforts in the country, a statement said.

"The TB consortium is working with public and private institutes to guide the country's research efforts towards the development of point-of-care diagnostics, shorter treatment regimens and an effective vaccine for tuberclosis," it said.
