This is really interesting. We certainly should try to get some of that working within TDI/TSL!

This is some reading you guys can do for getting familiarize on what we intend to do with TDI and TSL. I have posted in our respective web sites a one-page flyer with the very basic information:

You can also read the manuscript that started it all... Maurer, Arti Rai and Andrej Sali, PLoS Medicine 2004 and the commentary in The Economist about this manuscript.

TDI/TSL presented in Stanford University

Published by marcius

I have been introducing to the Stanford medical students what we do for the TDI and TSL initiatives. Achal S. Achrol is organizing a series of talks on Neglected Diseases and invited me to talk about our initiatives. You can see the slides here. I think that the audience was quite interested in the approach we are taking and hope we will have some of the folks joining TSL/TDI in a near future.

Achal and his collegues are very interested in implementing a wet-lab open-research community where scientists are able to share resources and information for a common goal... accelerating the drug discovery process for neglected diseases. There is certainly a good possibility of collaborating with them within the TSL initiative.

Minor glitches

Published by MatTodd

The feeds to papers on the left has gone, and the recent comments on the right is not updating. Also, for posting comments, there is the 'path alias' box. Could it be made a bit clearer what kind of information this is meant to contain - i.e. why it's useful?

First PZQ project up

Published by MatTodd

Miscellaneous

PZQ synthesis page is now up on the main site, along with the first project. Pasting from the dev site worked very well, including the embedded images. Can you port over the images gallery wholesale, Ginger?

I'm hoping to include some more projects in the short term, with the biology ones top of the to do list.

Tagging papers with 'schisto' or 'praziquantel' seems to be working nicely for Connotea, which is very useful. I added the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative to the resources page.
