Part 1: A Conversation on Malaria with the Seattle Malaria Clinical Trials Center
Malaria Partners International recently had a conversation with the Seattle Malaria Clinical Trials Center (MCTC) to learn more about their malaria research. Aside from the MCTC in Seattle, only one other U.S. facility conducts malaria challenge trials.
MCTC recruits healthy volunteers and conducts a variety of studies to investigate, treat, and prevent malaria infection in people. Watch our full conversation for an interesting discussion and the implications this research can have for malaria endemic countries.
Watch Part one of our conversation.
