This series allows us to approach NTDs from various perspectives illuminating different aspects in each episode. We start with philosophical and historical angles followed by interviews with scientists working in various branches of NTD research and reflect on these from historical and policy perspectives.
Each interview is a semi-structured, using an interview guide to prompt questions but we will be looking for a free-flowing conversation in a story-telling structure. This mostly begins with the interviewees original reasons for involvement with NTDs, moving to their specific areas of research and then asking broader questions to touch on the bigger issues and points of discussion.
