Bernard Munos, from Eli Lilly, wrote a very thorough article on open
collaborative research for neglected diseases and it was just published
at Nature: Can open-source R&D reinvigorate drug research. What I

describing how he thinks pharmaceutical companies can and should
participate in the process. Let's face it; we're in uncharted
territory. We don't really KNOW how it's going to work. We're in the
midst of a big evolving experimental process.My vision for how it will

that I firmly believe that both the centralized group idea of Bernard's
