Open Global Health Library
Compounds for your infectious disease research
The Open Global Health Library provides a set of interesting research compounds free of charge. You decide which infectious disease you are targeting and which experimental setup you are using.
What does the library contain?
Our library contains pre-selected R&D compounds. We invite you to use these compounds in your assay systems for your infectious disease research and you will be the full owner of your results. The compounds cover a wide range of molecular targets and could potentially interact with and modulate the activity of e.g. enzymes, receptors or transporters you are evaluating.
All compounds are small molecules (no biologicals), which will be supplied in 30 µl in a concentration of 10 mM in a solution of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO).
Who can apply?
We invite researchers from universities, research institutes and private companies to apply for our Open Global Health Library and to use our compound library for research and development purposes only.
Anyone doing research in infectious diseases is invited to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be aware that this program is not open to healthcare organizations (HCO).
How does it work?
If you are interested in the Open Global Health Library, please contact us via email@example.com with a brief outline of your intended research and the infectious disease you are targeting. In reply, we send you our Open Global Health Library agreement. Once the agreement is signed, we send you the compound library.
Please note that the agreement needs to be executed between us and your respective institution (e.g. university or company).
Compound structures and a certain set of further information will be provided upon sharing your results with us. Upon request we may also provide further compounds for additional experiments.
If you are interested in testing our compounds in other therapeutic areas than human infectious diseases, please have a look at our Biopharma Mini Library or contact us directly (firstname.lastname@example.org).
What's in it for me?
The Open Global Health Library is an open innovation initiative to support research and development in infectious diseases.
- We provide the compounds free of charge
- You retain all rights to results and IP
- You are free to publish your results
- We will support you in follow up discussions
We welcome you to share your results with us for follow-ups. If you intend to publish your results in scientific journals, we ask you to acknowledge Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany and the Open Global Health Library in your upcoming publication.
