Tools for Tomorrow: CDC's Malaria Research

Current and Future Research

CDC's research extends from basic research and development in the field and laboratory to strategic and applied research aimed at controlling and ultimately eliminating malaria.

Research Contributions

Over the years, CDC has created tools for use in the field and laboratory to ensure effectiveness of interventions, developed interventions adopted by the World Health Organization as part of the essential package of malaria interventions, and refined the use of these interventions to overcome barriers and maximize effectiveness.

Research Resources and Services

CDC’s insectary and animal facilities complement CDC laboratories and serve as sites to conduct basic research studies or assist others in their research. Findings from these studies can be in turn verified or expanded during field investigations. CDC also contributes to the Malaria Research and Reference Reagent Resource Center, providing research material to private, government, and academic researchers. CDC’s DPDx provides web-based reference and training services for parasites and parasitic diseases, including malaria, as well as diagnostic assistance in identifying parasites.

Research Partnerships

CDC regularly plans and conducts research in collaboration with other institutions that combines field and laboratory activities. In addition, CDC malaria research laboratories serve as WHO Collaborating Centers for Malaria. CDC malaria experts also work closely with research working groups and serve as advisors to technical review panels, editorial boards, and a global spectrum of institutes and organizations.
