South-south Malaria Antigen Research parTnership

SMART South-South Malaria Antigen Research Partnership partner countries share archived serum samples and epidemiological data on the incidence of malaria from previously conducted prospective cohort studies. Thus, a unique dataset containing close to 10,000 samples and data has been assembled.  This provides incredible analytical power, and simultaneously deals with the heterogeneity of malaria transmission in Africa. Samples are processed and analyzed in a standardized fashion with the goal of identifying correlates of protection against Plasmodium falciparum malaria. The outputs will be informative for malaria vaccine development. Browse through our site to learn more.
