MSU researchers awarded $9.1 million grant to battle malaria in Malawi
Date:7/8/2010

ry of about 13 million people. The highest burden is borne by children as they have not yet developed immunity to malaria parasites. MSU has been actively involved in malaria research in Malawi since 1985.

The research project, part of a newly established NIH network of International Centers of Excellence for Malaria Research, includes investigators from University of Maryland, University of Michigan, Harvard School of Public Health and the University of Malawi's College of Medicine. The proposal was developed with input from the National Malaria Control Programme, the relevant policy-making body in Malawi.

That coordination, Taylor said, will enable the team to translate "data into policy," ensuring research findings are brought to bear on policy development.

"Malawi, with its political will, track record in malaria research and ecological diversity, has the potential to be a site for transformative research on malaria control, prevention and elimination," she said.

Myriad other MSU researchers are taking part in the unprecedented project; among them are: Karl Seydel, leading the molecular and genomics work; Ned Walker working with entomological aspects; Jonathan Babbage of the Biomedical Research Informatics Core supporting data management and biostatistics; and Lynn Mande coordinating the finance management and administration. The collaborative project involves five MSU faculty members from the colleges of Osteopathic Medicine and Natural Science as well as MSU's Biomedical Research Informatics Core.
