"Medpedia offers an exciting vehicle to enhance discussions of medical topics through an interactive format. I believe it will facilitate transfer of medical knowledge in ways not currently available" said Dr. Joseph Martin, former Dean to both the Harvard and UCSF Medical Schools. "Becoming an Editor-Contributor to Medpedia will provide tens of thousands of medical professionals around the world the opportunity to make a difference in improving the health of our patients."

In anticipation of its launch later in 2008, today Medpedia is calling for the world's qualified M.D.s, biomedical research Ph.D.s, and clinicians to go to http://www.medpedia.com to apply to become Editors of content. Only licensed medical professionals and organizations in good standing who are screened through a rigorous internal review process will be approved to provide and edit information.

Kapor serves on the Advisory Board of the Wikimedia Foundation, is the Founding Chair of Mozilla Foundation, the Co-Founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the Founder of the Lotus Development Corp. "The Medpedia Project is doing a great job of customizing the Wikimedia technology platform to the unique requirements of medical and health information while staying true to the proven methods of open-source, collaborative knowledge building," he said.
