Final Report - BIOMALPAR (Biology and Pathology of the Malaria Parasite)

Project ID: 503578
Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report for the BIOMALPAR project which aimed to decipher the basic mechanisms of pathogenesis and crucial parasite specific pathways. As outlined in the report, the project has created greater transparency in European malaria research activities.

It has significantly increased the coordination of new collaborative projects between institutional laboratories within Europe and with African partners. Many new grand applications have been catalysed through BIOMALPAR meetings. It has decreased redundancy in the research agenda and significantly raised complimentary grants. It has trained a new generation of students familiar with state of the art malaria research.

The networks research can be can be considered as an important motor that continually fills the various pipelines of new intervention strategies against this deadly disease through cutting edge discovery.
