RESEARCH ABSTRACT SUMMARY:
View Research Abstract
Anja T.R. Jensen is studying molecular differences between malaria parasites causing severe and non-severe malaria in children. Antibody reactivity to the identified molecules will be analyzed in individuals showing different malaria symptoms and living in malaria endemic areas. Her work should help identify antigens for a malaria vaccine.
