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 Matiscope is a non-invasive, bloodless method of malaria diagnosis. I speak with Brian Gitta, a Ugandan IT Specialist, who developed the technology
A new study has found that fungus, genetically enhanced to produce spider toxin, can kill a large-number of malaria-carrying mosquitos. I speak with Brian Lovett, who is one of the authors of the paper.
The Mobile Malaria team have just set off on a 6,000 km journey across Africa, taking portable DNA sequencing technology with them on the road. I speak with Dr George Busby who leads the team.
Fatou Secka, from The Gambia, is using a 3D-printed lens adapter to analyse blood samples for malaria. She hopes to one day develop her own low-cost microscope for malaria diagnosis.
I’m joined by Dr Mark Amos to discuss the accuracy of malaria diagnostic tools. How do RDTs compare to traditional lab testing?
Target Malaria is a consortium of researchers using ‘gene drives’ to fight malaria. I speak with Dr Alekos Simoni, one of their researchers based at Imperial College London.
