R2STOP is an initiative of effect:hope and leprosy.ie. Its purpose is to promote and fund research that will close existing knowledge gaps in the relationship between hosts, environment, and the pathogens that cause the conditions known as neglected tropical diseases.

R2STOP’s initial research agenda addresses critical areas related to increasing the understanding of M. leprae transmission with the heightened potential of improving strategies for blocking transmission.

The initial priority funding areas include:

  • Human-to-human transmission (human reservoirs)
  • Non-human Reservoirs
  • Host-Pathogen Interactions
  • Transmission Networks
