Mycetoma | Started in 2018
The Mycetoma Open Source project (MycetOS) uses an Open Pharma approach to discover new treatments (new chemical entities, or NCEs) for fungal mycetoma (eumycetoma).
All work generated by MycetOS will be published immediately and in real time to the public domain database and thus remain free of the constraints of intellectual property.
