Understanding human behaviour at night could reduce malaria transmission, study shows how the mosquito immune system combats malaria parasites and a researcher uncovers new insights into mosquito feeding behaviours.
Bednets play an important role in fighting malaria. I speak with Paul Krezanoski about the unreliable mechanisms of monitoring bednet usage and his high-tech solution, the SmartNet.
The results of an extended Phase 3 RTS,S clinical trial are published in The Lancet, and researchers develop a high-tech mosquito net that monitors usage.
The Matiscope is a non-invasive, bloodless method of malaria diagnosis. I speak with Brian Gitta, a Ugandan IT Specialist, who developed the technology
Scientists gather in Paris for the 7th International Conference on Plasmodium vivax Research, high-resolution maps chart P. falciparum and P. vivax prevalence over seventeen years and Brian Gitta is named a Laurette for developing a new method of malaria diagnosis.
A new study finds that fungus, genetically enhanced to produce spider toxin, can kill a large-number of malaria-carrying mosquitos.
