Pilot survey on drug targets for Human African Trypanosomiasis.
Posted: 11.April.2007

A pilot survey on drug targets for Human African Trypanosomiasis is being run now. The idea to survey the scientific community came from a workshop on Drug Discovery for Trypanosomatid Diseases (Dundee, February 2007). This exercise will be used to design similar surveys for other neglected infectious diseases. The output of this community-driven survey will be posted on this site. For more information about the survey see The Scientific Community Human African Trypanosomiasis Drug Target Survey.
