Could a funded research expert help progress your research and development in drug discovery?
A Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases, led from Durham University (UK), aims to find new solutions for two potentially fatal parasitic diseases, Chagas disease and leishmaniasis.
• We seek routes to effective treatments without the severe side effects of current drugs
• Our 45 teams in 13 research institutes across South America, Asia and the UK, include experts in immunology, chemical biology, structural biology, and parasitology
How can we help you?
Our Network of scientists can help your company progress your research and development in drug discovery.
• We provide up to £10,000, to fund e.g.:
o A researcher for 3 months
o Specialised equipment for joint project
