Case Western Reserve University named International Center of Excellence for Malaria Research
Date:7/12/2010

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has named Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine as the lead institution of an International Center of Excellence for Malaria Research (ICEMR). The $7.9M seven-year grant will accelerate the control of malaria and help eliminate it worldwide. The prestigious center is one of ten new malaria research centers around the world. James Kazura, MD, Professor of International Health and Medicine at Case Western Reserve University will serve as the principle investigator of a project titled "Research to Control and Eliminate Malaria in SE Asia and SW Pacific."

The NIAID awards will establish ICEMRs in regions where malaria is endemic, including parts of Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands and Latin America. The objective of the "Research to Control and Eliminate Malaria in SE Asia and SW Pacific" project is to advance knowledge of how national and regional programs to control and eliminate malaria in Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands affect the disease's epidemiology, transmission by the essential mosquito vectors, pathogenesis, and morbidity. Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands represent a wide spectrum of malaria transmission intensity and disease, as all four types of human malaria exist in mosquitoes and humans who are exposed to these insect vectors that transmit the parasite. The ICEMR at Case Western Reserve University will integrate clinical and field approaches with laboratory-based immunologic, molecular and genomic methods and concepts. Like the other ICEMRs, the research will investigate the transmission of malaria by mosquitoes and the pathogenesis of the disease it causes in infected humans. Research findings will be compiled and shared among centers in order to advance the development of long-term sustainable tools for eliminating and eradicating malaria globally through the development of safer, more effective drugs
