Please follow the shared request; Dear colleague, Are you interested in serving as a peer reviewer for a TDR Global project focused on public engagement and crowdfunding? TDR Global is a community of passionate scientists and experts who have been working with TDR on research on infectious diseases of poverty. This peer review will include a practical guide that will help low and middle-income countries’ researchers to improve public engagement skills and use crowdfunding for research. The deadline for registering interest is September 30th and selected peer reviewers would have one week (5 – 12 October) to complete their assessment. We anticipate that this would take 2-3 hours and all peer reviewers will be acknowledged in the final documents. We are particularly interested in reviewers from low and middle-income countries, early career investigators, women, and TDR Global members. If you are interested, please provide your details here: https://forms.gle/MK4vuaDycS1BBGZ78 Thank you, Priyanka and Joe on behalf of the TDR Global Public Engagement and Crowdfunding Team

Dear Backers, We appreciate you making the effort to come to our fundraising event for the TDR Crowdfunding Gallage project launched on the Experiment.com site. We had an amazing turnout, and we managed to bring in $ 1594 more in donations! Your attendance and support have played an important role in our event’s success—thank you. With your contribution, we’ll be able to control the sand fly and leishmaniasis disease in the Madawachchiya rural site in Sri Lanka. Your generosity and support are an encouraging reminder of why we started this fundraiser—to help the rural community in the Madawachchiya . With gratitude, Asha
