In February 2017, malaria experts from around the world gathered in Kampala, Uganda to attend "Malaria: From Innovation to Eradication", a conference organized by Keystone Symposia in collaboration with MESA. Eight scientists shared their cutting edge research with MESA, on film.
"SciTalks", in-conference short talks and poster presentations recorded and shared on the Internet, are designed to extend the reach of the science present within each Keystone Symposia conference. Click here to watch these Keystone malaria talks and presentations in the MESA Knowledge Hub.
