World Malaria Day 2018 – How research at Imperial College is contributing to malaria eradication efforts
This year’s World Malaria Day theme, ‘Ready to Beat Malaria’ focuses attention on the collective energy and commitment of the global malaria community in uniting around the common goal of a world free of malaria. At Imperial, over 100 researchers work on different aspects of malaria eradication, and so for this year’s theme we asked Imperial researchers across various disciplines to respond to the question, ‘How is your research contributing to the global effort to eradicate malaria?’
From better understanding the parasite’s life cycle to the use of mathematical modelling, and from the study of immunity, diagnostic tools and therapy to the genetic control of malaria’s mosquito vectors, this video reveals how the combined expertise of Imperial College Network of Excellence in Malaria’s members are working towards the aim of malaria eradication.
The video features Professor Jake Baum, Dr Anna Barnard, Dr Aubrey Cunnington, Kenny Malpartida Cárdenas, Dr Tony Nolan and Dr Ellie Sherrard-Smith
