The India ICEMR will explore the analysis of mixed-species and mixed-genotype infections generated by the two predominant human malaria species in India, Plasmodium falciparum and P. vivax. The research team will also study how such infections influence disease outcome, vector transmission, and drug resistance.
Malaria is a significant public health burden in India. The India ICEMR will use cutting-edge genomics technology in an attempt to find better ways to diagnose and treat patients with resistant malaria parasites.
