Current Research Studies
The Human Paratuberculosis Foundation strives to accelerate the most promising Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) research initiatives and seeks to sponsor innovative research projects which will add to our understanding of MAP’s role in human disease. We encourage cooperative efforts among investigators, research centers, and other resources.
Human Para’s research goals include:
The creation of a human MAP diagnostic test.
Detection of MAP in the human population.
Understanding the mechanism of MAP in human disease.
Creation of therapeutic approaches for human MAP conditions.
Preventing transmission of MAP to the human population.
