Abstract

Improving the control of infectious diseases requires the evaluation of interventions that prevent disease at the population level and successfully treat infections at the individual level. This proposal brings together advanced biostatistical research with mathematical modelling to discover novel methods for evaluating antimalarial treatments and malaria vaccine candidates, leading to new insights in infectious disease control and building capacity in this emerging cross-disciplinary field.
