An article on World Economic Forum reports on research by Jonathan Lovell, associate professor of biomedical engineering, that could boost the efficacy of malarial transmission-blocking vaccines to help reduce the spread of the disease that kills more than 400,000 people annually.
“Malaria is a huge global problem. This approach — using a transmission-blocking vaccine — could be part of a suite of tools that we use to tackle the disease,” he said.
