The overall goal of the South Asia ICEMR is to understand the genetic plasticity (or adaptability) of malaria parasites in the region and its relationship to drug resistance, virulence, transmission and human immunity.
Findings by the Center should greatly assist the assessment of malaria threat levels in South Asia and may also have predictive value in understanding new, unexpected outbreaks of severe malaria.
