Tracking the spread of artemisinin drug resistance in Southeast Asia

Posted 31/07/2014

The Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU) has published results in the New England Journal of Medicine, showing that drug-resistant malaria parasites have spread to critical border regions of Southeast Asia. NDM Professor Nicholas White, chair of MORU and WWARN, has stated that ‘we will need to take more radical action and make this a global public health priority, without delay.’ If we are not able to contain these parasites, it is possible that resistance will spread into malaria endemic regions of Africa and could derail the global drive to control and eventually eliminate malaria altogether.

Why Work for NDM?

Sarah De Val

Dr Sarah DeVal is a Principal Investigator and Group Head with the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research

“Maternity leave at the University is great and I think six months is just the right amount of time. I also really like the ‘keep in touch’ scheme, which allowed me to attend and claim expenses on three conferences while I was on leave. Attending conferences is really important for career progression, so this scheme really helped me to feel connected.”
