Scientific articles from TDR research increases 33%
TDR’s annual analysis of peer reviewed publications from grantees shows an increase of 33% in the volume of articles from 2010 to 2011.
A total of 233 peer-reviewed publications acknowledged TDR support. Of these, 143 publications (61%) had their lead authors from low- and middle-income countries where the diseases are endemic. TDR’s goal is 65%, so progress is being made and the target is close.
“One of our core functions is to strengthen research capacity where it’s needed,” says TDR Director Dr John Reeder. “While there is much that is still needed, this is a sign that we’re on the right track.” TDR is in the process of updating its strategy, which includes an expansion of research capacity strengthening.
