Scientific Groups

Our scientific work is delivered through groups, each of which focuses on one of the complementary aspects of antimalarial resistance. Our groups work collaboratively and across disciplines.

Five scientific groups, located in centres of excellence around the world, offer a platform for collaborative research into the understanding, identification and spread of malaria drug resistance – clinical, pharmacology, in vitro, molecular and medicine quality. Each group specialises in different aspects of malaria drug resistance and works collaboratively to develop research analysis, customised tools and services designed to facilitate quality-assured data collection, analysis and reporting.
