The book explores recent developments in our understanding of malaria biology and their potential to influence malaria elimination/eradication strategies. The authors describe recent developments in their respective research areas and suggest both how these insights could guide intervention strategy and where critical knowledge gaps remain. Contributors discuss the unique features and challenges presented at key stages of the malaria life cycle and by different Plasmodium species, malaria transmission and its interruption, the challenge of drug resistance, the future of malaria vaccine strategies, epigenetic regulation of malaria-associated genes, and new approaches in malaria research, including genomics and modelling.
