Many people here will already know about the first paper, but just in case... Congrats again, everyone. Looking forward to the next one, soon. If you're wanting more detail on the day-to-day activities of OSM, you'll find most of it at Github (rather than here) - it just seems to be working better as a platform: https://github.com/OpenSourceMalaria/OSM_To_Do_List/issues?q=is%3Aopen
First Open Source Malaria paper might be of interest to a number of people in this community: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/acscentsci.6b00086, along with a lay summary in The Conversation (https://theconversation.com/making-drug-development-less-secretive-could-lead-to-quicker-cheaper-therapies-64744) and a "Credit Reel" blog post giving the back story (https://intermolecular.wordpress.com/2016/09/14/open-source-malarias-first-paper/). By chance this coincided with the release yesterday of the report of the UN High Level Panel on Access to Medicines (http://www.unsgaccessmeds.org/final-report/) which says "the world must take bold new approaches to ... health technology innovation".

For those of you who <3 medicinal chemistry or #malaria. Planning ahead.
Which compounds to make next in OSM's Series 4? Post summarising data, plotting out possible synthetic targets. Open for suggestions, and anyone is free to make any of them. (Though +Alice Williamson will want to do The Nemesis - that's kind of personal)

Slides for a talk I gave in Sydney on how openness boosts research. Feel free to use/adapt under CC-BY. I think it's an important message to get across: it's not that we "ought" to be more open, but that if we are open it's an advantage, because the research is then better/faster/more robust. I know everyone here gets this.

Next Open Source Malaria online meeting is on Monday 27th July. See link below for times. We've an hour to discuss next steps with Series 4. Should anyone else want to discuss anything else of interest to members of the consortium, we should organise other/follow-up meetings, no problem. #medchem #malaria

Summary of what we know of the metabolic liabilities of OSM's Series 4, in advance of the meeting in 10 days. How do we use this information in the next round of analog design? #medchem
