Open Source Drug Discovery for Malaria

Filed under: science — Tags: , , — ghtech @ 3:59 pm

There is a cool new effort unifying several themes of interest to us here, namely global health, drug discovery, and open science efforts. Open Source Drug Discovery for Malaria (OSDD for Malaria) is a venture started recently by the lab of Dr. Matthew Todd, an organic chemist, at the University of Sydney and the Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV). Basically, OSDD for Malaria will act as a hub for global efforts in open source drug discovery for malaria. You can ready more about the project at the link above or on the Highlight Health blog. Be sure also to circle them in G+ if you are into that sort of thing.
