IRTG 2290/1: Crossing Boundaries: Molecular Interactions in Malaria


Malaria is caused by single-celled parasites known as plasmodium, which are transmitted by the bite of the Anopheles mosquito. Some basic principles of the progress of the disease and parasite-host interactions are still not understood. The German-Australian International Research Training Group “Crossing Boundaries: Molecular Interactions in Malaria” will therefore investigate the molecular mechanisms of plasmodium infections as a basis for strategies to develop new drugs and immunisations for improved malaria treatment and prevention.
