Dr. Daral J. Jackwood, Ph.D., director of the Center for Diagnostic Assays at the Ohio State University and Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center in Wooster, Ohio, USA, is leading efforts to encourage researchers to adopt open-access science in the fields of animal health and food safety through the Center's www.diagnosticspeak.com.
Dr. Jackwood's online members-only forum is dedicated to advancing open-access science by allowing professionals to share discoveries, seek insight and exchange ideas that advance the field of animal disease diagnostics.
According to Dr. Jackwood: “DiagnosticSpeak.com provides an opportunity to create a database of diagnostic information that is searchable and available to everyone. Participating researchers will stay better informed about animal health issues and new diagnostic assays. They can also exchange ideas on how to more effectively and efficiently conduct diagnostic assays by interacting with colleagues on diagnostic issues related to food safety.
“DiagnosticSpeak.com is designed to provide a single vehicle through which the worldwide scientific community can gather to discuss issues relevant to infectious disease diagnostics in the area of food safety, food animals and environmental safety," he said.
