The Innovate TB contest

By Siouxsie Wiles 14/06/2012


The Stop TB Partnership and Working Group on New TB Drugs are currently running the Innovate TB Contest where people where asked to submit their videos showing how innovations are revolutionising tuberculosis (TB) prevention, treatment and advocacy. Submissions are now closed and the public have just a couple of days left to vote. The three videos with the most votes will then be evaluated on their overall message, relevance to the theme, and creativity by an expert panel of TB stakeholders.

My firefly animation, Meet the Lamypridae, which shows how bioluminescence is being used to speed up TB drug discovery, is currently sat in 5th place. Please help it get into to top three by clicking on the link to the video and voting by clicking on the Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn buttons underneath it.

Thanks for your help!
