Malaria Vaccines – an Oxford First

NOTE: Starts at 18:00
Venue:
St Anne’s College

Malaria is the most devastating parasitic disease of humans and a major cause of
childhood mortality in developing countries. Malaria causes hundreds of millions of
disease episodes and half a million deaths each year, and progress in reducing
morality has stalled. Efforts to make a malaria vaccine stretch back many decades
but new data indicate that a highly effective malaria vaccine should be deployable in
the mid-2020s. A multi-stage vaccine from Oxford has arguably the best chance of
filling that role and recent progress in developing such a vaccine at Oxford and at
field sites in malaria-endemic countries will be summarised.
