"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all the hard work you put into creating the Malaria Centre web site. I have had nothing but good feedback and nice compliments about the site (and now the newsletter) but these should actually all be directed at you guys. It has made a massive difference to the Centre and our sense of identity and hopefully to our long term sustainability. As always it was a pleasure to work with you all and thank you for making it all a very painless, jargon free and even at times, a 'fun' process"

"Working with Manta Ray Media (MRM) to develop our website has been excellent. We wanted to create an open-access, global information resource on the distribution of worm infections. MRM straightaway understood our needs and shared our passion to create this open resource. They came up with some great technical solutions to our requirements, and their knowledge of the international health community was particularly helpful. The final product was a website which was visually appealing and very easy to navigate, enabling users to visualise the assembled data and maps."
