Quick status update

A quick status update. While we were successful in getting our grant with the Australian Research Council and the World Health Organisation, we have so far been unable to formulate a contract that is mutually acceptable to all parties. Negotiations are continuing, but this explains the lack of recent activity coming from our lab on the schisto projects - we don't have the money yet! Fingers crossed this situation will resolve itself positively in the near future.

We did just publish a paper on some synthetic work one of my students, Althea, finished in her Honours year in November. Any ideas on variants of this that might be usefully developed for large scale/easy syntheses of PZQ most welcome.

And a major review on PZQ was just published by Doenhoff, Cioli and Utzinger.
