Meeting Summary:

This symposium addresses the pressing need to accelerate the development of new antimalarials that can treat Plasmodium falciparum parasites that have acquired resistance to existing first-line drugs. We will bring together diverse players, from field-based clinician-investigators and modelers to experts in drug discovery and development, to collectively identify new areas of collaboration and new approaches to overcome resistance.

The program will span basic mechanistic studies of drug mechanisms of action and resistance, field studies of ACT efficacy, clinical insights and industry perspectives, in order to integrate all aspects of research towards solving the global malaria epidemic.

Program Highlights:

  • Innovations in antimalarial drug discovery
  • New medicines, prophylaxis, treatment and transmission-blocking strategies
  • Experimental, preclinical and clinical models for advancing drug discovery efforts
  • Antimalarial use, drug resistance and mechanistic insights
  • Reducing the burden of malaria across various endemic regions
