CENTRE FOR RESEARCH EXCELLENCE IN MALARIA ELIMINATION
Grant number: 1134989 | Funding period: 2017 - 2023
The CRE will work to accelerate progress towards malaria elimination in our region, through Surveillance, to develop better ways to monitor malaria transmission and discover who is infected, and to track movement of malaria parasites and spread of drug resistance. Diagnosis, to develop and test new, more sensitive ways of detecting malaria. Treatment, to fast track development of new antimalarials, and improve access to ensure all infected people get highly effective drugs.
