A co-ordinated, rational, and integrated effort to set logical priorities in anti-malarial drug discovery initiatives

“The Coordination, Rationalization, and Integration of anti-MALarial drug Discovery & Development Initiatives (CRIMALDDI) Consortium, funded by the EU Framework Seven Programme, attempted in 2009-2010, through a series of interactive and facilitated workshops, to develop priorities for research to expedite the discovery of new anti-malarials. Ian Boulton was the Project Leader for this initiative, responsible for facilitating the workshops as well as contributing to the development of the conclusions and recommendations. This paper, published at the start of the project, outlines the methodology to be used in developing the priorities throughout the project.”
