Breaking Good: making medicines

 

Dr Alice E Williamson

School of Chemistry, University of Sydney

 

Imagine a scenario where a high school teacher works alongside their students to make drugs. This scenario might sound scarily familiar to anyone who watched the hit series, Breaking Bad, but the Open Source Malaria consortium have a very different plan – Breaking Good.

 

Malaria killed over 400 000 people in 2015, so there is an urgent need for antimalarial drugs. Find out how Open Source Malaria is demonstrating that science is better and more efficient when ideas and data are shared, as they conduct open source drug discovery with collaborators at universities around the world, plus high school students. It’s drug development like you’ve never seen it before!
