About This Project

Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) infect over a billion of the poorest people in the world, yet only a tiny fraction of all drug discovery efforts is focused on this. There is little sharing of data across labs working in this area, leading to duplication of effort and precious time and money wasted. We are piloting a new data sharing model for NTD drug discovery that will help speed treatments for these diseases that disable and kill so many.
