Our first input into the NTD database

Lab Note #2
Apr 02, 2015

Dear backers,

Since our last update, we've been hard at work as we continue to move forward on our NTD data sharing project.

As you can imagine, collaborations like this one have many moving parts and stakeholders. We're doing our best to continue moving this initiative forward productively.

Related to these efforts, I do have an exciting development.

In late 2014, our group published a research paper in the journal PLOS-Neglected Trop­ical Dis­eases, presenting hun­dreds of such starting points for poten­tially treating Human African try­panoso­mi­asis, or sleeping sick­ness, a deadly NTD that affects thou­sands of people annually.

Our findings from this research was the first data deposited into the portal that your funds have helped to support!

Until next time, we'll keep you posted.
