Superbug: an emerging and quickly spreading threat to the race against malaria

February 17, 2017 - 09:46 -- Salomé Beaujouan

While the malaria death count in Cambodia dropped to just one case in 2016, a new threat to the race against the disease arises in south-eastern Asia: superbugs. A superbug is a drug-resistant, human-killing parasite that modern medicine struggles to combat.

Call for preliminary scientific data for “high risk” project proposals?

May 3, 2013 - 09:30 -- Sombroek HLI

Why not let MalariaWorld play a vital role in supporting ground breaking studies that often lack the preliminary ecological field data, required by traditional funders?
We, as dedicated scientists, can assemble a global bank of preliminary scientific field data for “high risk” project proposals to open new directions within malaria research. In doing so, young scientists are able to test creative ideas ahead of time and more experienced scientists are able to explore unexpected and promising observations or discoveries.
