Wakefield, Massachusetts - February 6, 2014 - ThetranSMARTFoundation, a non-profit organization providing a global, open-source knowledge management platform for scientists to share pre-competitive translational research data, today announced that it is hosting an International Developers Meeting February 5-7, 2014 at Recombinant by Deloitte's location in Newton, Mass.

We thank our host and sponsors for this meeting. Without the support of the community, the success of this open-source platform would not be possible."
