WWARN Explorer Acknowledgements
The open sharing of scientific data is recognized as a major contribution to global public health. Sharing allows data to be combined across countries and time to uncover regional and global trends, to foster scientific innovation and to improve health policy.
Ambitious data sharing initiatives, such as WWARN, are only possible through global cooperation. WWARN would like to acknowledge the generous contributions of data from all sources, without which WWARN Explorer would not exist. Institutions and investigators are acknowledged in the study details displayed in WWARN Explorer, where you will also find a link to any publication(s) available in PubMed.
WWARN would like to extend a special thank you to the following individuals who made substantial contributions to the development of the WWARN Explorer preview version:
Sue Lee and Kasia Stepniewska at the Mahidol-Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit for the preliminary collation of clinical datasets, standardisation of variables and definitions, and endless hours of merging.
Cally Roper and Inbarani Naidoo at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine for sharing their large molecular dataset.
François Nosten at Shoklo Malaria Research Unit and Grant Dorsey from UCSF whose comprehensive datasets have been critical in the development of the WWARN Explorer.
Alistair Miles and Victoria Cornelius at the MRC Centre for Genomics and Global Health whose support for informatics and programme management activities was instrumental in developing the initial WWARN Explorer release.
