Open Source Malaria Webinar recording
A webinar describing the work undertaken by the Open Source Malaria Consortium was held on 24th May and a recording of the meeting is now available.
The meeting lasted around 1 hour and be viewed online here
Open Source Malaria (OSM) is aimed at finding new medicines for malaria using open source principles, embodied in the 6 Laws of Open Research. At the moment the majority of work involves the synthesis of analogs of compounds identified by big pharma, with the aim of improving their potency while making the molecules more "druggable", what is known as a "hit-to-lead" campaign.
The questions raised in the webinar are highlighted as “Meeting Discussion Points” on the github page. Please feel free to join in the discussions.
