On October 22 and 23, 2015, the Neglected Tropical Diseases Support Center will host the third annual meeting of the Coalition for Operational Research on Neglected Tropical Diseases (COR-NTD) in Philadelphia, PA.

Participants, including local and international researchers and implementers of programs aimed at controlling and eliminating neglected tropical diseases amenable to preventative chemotherapy, will discuss the progress of this research and have the opportunity to learn from initiatives to address these and other parasitic infections. The goal of the meeting is to strengthen the community of researchers, program implementers and their supporters to address knowledge gaps in a coordinated – rather than competitive – way, informing the agenda of research to come and facilitating the global efforts of WHO and the endemic countries to overcome these diseases. 

Invitations to register will be sent out in August. For more information, contact Chelsea Toledo at ctoledo@taskforce.org.
