Welcome ...  

Welcome to the “Cytoadherence in Pediatric Malaria” website. Our work is a collaboration between researchers at the University of Toronto (Canada), Harvard University (USA), and Makerere University (Uganda).

Our research is focused on the vascular biology of Plasmodium falciparum malaria-- a leading killer of children worldwide. We hope to understand better those host factors that help children survive malaria infection. In addition we look forward to an educational exchange between our universities in North America and Africa.

The research is being conducted in conjunction with the following major medical centers:

  • University Health Network, Toronto, CA
  • Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, USA
  • Mulago Hospital Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, Kampala, Uganda

Our research is funded principally by a grant from the International Society of Blood Transfusion with additional generous contributions from both university and corporate sources. To see a listing of sponsors, please click on “Links”.

The study is registered at:, NCT # 00707200.
