Prospects for new tools to control malaria
Malaria remains a global health threat. Over the last 15 years there has been major international investment for malaria control and there have been substantial gains in reducing malaria in many countries, but now there is evidence that these trends are slowing. New approaches are needed to achieve the global goals of malaria control and elimination.

Professor Kevin Marsh, Professor of Tropical Medicine at the Nuffield Department of Medicine in the University of Oxford, will talk about the current exciting areas in malaria research including vaccines, long acting drugs and genetic modification of the mosquito vectors.
