Research Library

 Dr. Jean Jannin, Advisor from WHO, and former student, Jeremy Schwartz at the University of Rochester Medical School


To Advisors, Students, Adult Learners:

The Research Library is open 24 hours a day! Here you will find a listing of articles and links for the informed reader as well as articles that we found interesting to both adults and students about our targeted neglected diseases.

There is also a tab for Student Reads. Student Reads are pertinent articles that have been summarized for the understanding of our students.

Please inform of us of any articles that you find to be relevant, and we will review and enter them in the library. For your information, you will see a list of films and their sources that educate about neglected diseases. The films should be previewed by an Advisor in order to choose appropriately for each age group.
