Malaria

Malaria is transmitted through mosquito bites. Symptoms of malaria include high fevers, uncontrollable chills and flu-like conditions. If not monitored and treated properly, malaria can be fatal.

Researchers at Yerkes are focusing on vaccine research to develop treatments for individuals who have been affected by malaria and preventive measures for individuals who live in highly affected populations.
