It involves studying thousands of individuals, often from different populations, with exacting techniques. The scale and complexity of such research has required the formation of research(More)
G enomic research has the potential to improve global health by elucidating basic mechanisms of disease, susceptibility, and resistance, thereby guiding the development of preventive interventions [1]. Recently developed methods for exploring how human genetic variation affects resistance are likely to provide strategic clues about vaccine development for(More)

Countless others suffer from neglected tropical diseases, such as sleeping sickness, lymphatic fi lariasis, and blinding trachoma, for which(More)
BACKGROUND This article centers around a proposal outlining how research universities could leverage their intellectual property to help close the access gap for health innovations in poor countries. A recent deal between Emory University, Gilead Sciences, and Royalty Pharma is used as an example to illustrate how 'equitable access licensing' could be put(More)
