Recent trends in medical research are, for a smaller number of large research programmes, developed to address the big questions rather than for large numbers of small projects. This is a trend encouraged by research funding bodies and the research community. This trend requires more collaboration between research groups and international cooperation, as well as increased inter disciplinary working. This has also promoted greater standardisation of methods to produce comparable results as well as encouraging the use of common technical terms to facilitate working across disciplines. Recent examples of this trend in leprosy research are the TRIPOD trials,1 the Participation Scale programme,2 the SALSA programme,3 IDEAL4 and the INFIR programme. This paper presents an overview of the INFIR programme to illustrate a collaborative programme of research in leprosy describing the background, funding, implementation and output.

Abstract

Recent trends in medical research are, for a smaller number of large research programmes, developed to address the big questions rather than for large numbers of small projects. This is a trend encouraged by research funding bodies and the research community. This trend requires more collaboration between research groups and international cooperation, as well as increased inter disciplinary working. This has also promoted greater standardisation of methods to produce comparable results as well as encouraging the use of common technical terms to facilitate working across disciplines. Recent examples of this trend in leprosy research are the TRIPOD trials,1 the Participation Scale programme,2 the SALSA programme,3 IDEAL4 and the INFIR programme. This paper presents an overview of the INFIR programme to illustrate a collaborative programme of research in leprosy describing the background, funding, implementation and output.
