In New York, Sabin led a group of younger investigators and continued her studies on the role of the monocyte and other white blood cells in the defense of the body against infections. Sabin's team participated in an inter-institutional program organized by the National Tuberculosis Association's Medical Research Committee to integrate bacteriological, chemical, and biological studies being carried out in pharmaceutical companies, universities, and federal and private research institutes. These research efforts, between 1925 and 1938, yielded a much better understanding of the disease.
