The ICEMR at Case Western Reserve University will oversee a collaborative research team of internationally respected investigators from the Papua New Guinea Institute of Medical Research, Walter & Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, University of Queensland, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - Division of Parasitic Diseases, Swiss Tropical Institute, the Burnet Institute of Melbourne, the University of Melbourne, and the Vector Borne Disease Control Programme in the Solomon Islands. Research conducted in Papua New Guinea will build on more than 20 years of a successful work and collaboration by Dr. Kazura and his peers at Case Western Reserve, Australian and Papua New Guinean institutions. The Solomon Islands initiative is a new research project.

"Case Western Reserve University is honored to be among the elite group of ICEMRs who share a common vision of reducing the health burden of malaria in the world. Our participation and leadership is a demonstration of our substantive work which is poised to make a marked difference in malaria control and global eradication of the disease," says Dr. Kazura, director of the university's Center for Global Health and Diseases. "This is an unprecedented project and opportunity; the ICEMR program offers incredible promise by its emphasis on a targeted research approach that involves the use of best practices and similar research protocols across various malaria endemic areas. Ultimately, this globally coordinated program represents a concerted effort to first limit the health burden of malaria and second, to irrevocably stop its transmission in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Pacific nations where the disease continues to have its major impact on infants, children, and pregnant women."
