GRAID - Global Research Alliance for Infectious Disease
GRAID (Global Research Alliance for Infectious Disease) is a platform for collaborative research among scientists around the world to contribute in the fight against infectious disease. According to WHO, infectious diseases are the major cause of death in low-income countries in 20161. Combining the resources of the countries worldwide, we have established this platform of scientists and health practitioners from many fields. At the early stage, we are conducting researches primarily in the genetics of infectious disease using state-of-the-art sequencing. We are also aiming to implement sequencing techniques in affected countries by means of portable sequencing developed by Oxford Nanopore Technologies. However, as more bright minds join this platform, we will expand our scope of research and techniques beyond genetics and sequencing. All in the goal of containing and conquering the threat of the humanity.
