A web-based system, TDR Global, is being set up to help link researchers and others around the world. Anyone who has been associated with TDR since its start can have their profiles published, and be connected to other experts, training, mentorship and other opportunities.

The new site will be launched later in 2015. Right now, the database is being set up with information about people associated with TDR since its start. This includes researchers who have received in the past or are currently receiving TDR training, research grants or have been involved in the work of TDR as a committee expert, adviser, current or former staff. TDR Global will offer an experts database, as well as new opportunities for collaborations. What data is public and what is private is controlled by each person.

“We have heard from many people that they would like more opportunities to connect with others in their fields. TDR Global is designed to reduce these geographical barriers.”

“We have heard from many people that they would like more opportunities to connect with others in their fields,” says TDR Director John Reeder. “Sometimes there are researchers just in the next state that they only meet at a conference far away. Other times, it could be someone on the other side of the globe who could be useful. TDR Global is designed to reduce these geographical barriers.”

Registering in the database

The first step is creating the database, so TDR wants to hear from you! If you would like to be included, please send a message to TDRGlobal@who.int indicating your full name and any other information about TDR connections. You will be contacted as soon as possible.

If you have already responded to an email from TDR on this database, you do not need to do anything further.
