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,
- 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
