NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The international non-profit Drugs for Neglected Diseases Initiative (DNDi) and the Institut Pasteur Korea (IP-K) will collaborate to screen for and examine molecules that may be used as new treatments for certain "neglected" diseases, IP-K said today.

The assay was developed by the Army Medical Research and Materiel Command in collaboration with the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research and Cepheid under a collaboration begun in 2005.
