According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2018, over 400,000 people died due to malaria infection. There is currently no vaccine against malaria.
Researchers at National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center are recruiting healthy adults, ages 18-50, to undergo an initial assessment to determine if they will qualify for future malaria studies. These future studies may involve evaluation of experimental medications, vaccines, and vaccine strategies to prevent malaria.
