1. Please provide a short summary of your research, project or technology.

Malaria is one of the world’s most significant infectious disease. While there exist improvements in the number of cases and deaths due to malaria, in 2016 the World-Health-Organisation reported an estimated 400.000 deaths, many of whom are young children. There is no widely effective malaria vaccine available and malaria parasite drug resistance is a major concern. The reason why multi-pronged approaches are required to prevent and treat malaria to achieve its eradication! The aim of my research is to discover mechanisms that the malaria parasite depends on to reproduce. My project combines biological and chemical approaches in order to better understand how the malaria parasite grows, and how we can use this information to develop new drugs which will permanently and safely destroy the parasite in the human body. With improving the common methods in malaria research I try to make an impact in the big wheel Malaria Drug Discovery!
