The Group has an expanding research programme in malaria. In 2011-12, this ranged from trials of malaria vaccines, malaria vector control tools, seasonal malaria chemoprevention, delivery systems for effective treatment drugs and long-lasting insecticidal nets, to studies on the impact of insecticide resistance on malaria vector control, the evaluation of programmatic interventions, and the epidemiology of malaria elimination. We collaborate closely with scientists in the UK and malaria endemic countries, with international agencies and with national malaria control programmes and other local implementing partners.
