Malaria

Malaria is a parasitic disease transmitted through the bites of infected Anopheles mosquitos. Symptoms of malaria include high fevers, uncontrollable chills and flu-like conditions. If not monitored and appropriately treated, malaria can be severe and potentially fatal.

Researchers at the Emory National Primate Research Center are focusing on studying host-pathogen interactions to understand the molecular mechanisms involved in pathogenesis and protective immune responses essential to develop novel preventions and treatments.
