Journal Publishes Special Issue of Studies from NIAID Malaria Research Centers
This month, academic journal Acta Tropica published a special issue of early studies from NIAID's International Centers of Excellence for Malaria Research (ICEMRs). The issue, prefaced by a foreword by NIAID program director Malla Rao, Ph.D., includes articles from each of the ten Centers and two more general papers on malaria research.

The ICEMRs, established in July 2010, comprise a global network of independent research centers in malaria-endemic countries. They aim to provide knowledge, tools, and evidence-based strategies to support researchers working in a variety of settings, especially in governments and health care institutions. By responding to emerging public health needs and existing challenges, their work will help bring critical infrastructure to malaria-endemic regions and build upon local training and research efforts.
