Congratulations to Geoff McFadden (University of Melbourne), Kevin Saliba (ANU) and colleagues who were successful in their project grant application for Australia – Europe Malaria Research Cooperation – OzEMalaR and were awarded $830,000 over 5 years. Malaria is a global problem with no single solution. A large, but sometimes disjointed, research community is addressing the problem, but more collaboration is vital. OzEMalaR will link 34 Australian labs with 47 European, African & Indian malaria researchers. Funding will enable exchange of modern technologies by supporting early career researchers (PhD and postdocs) from Australia to work and be trained in top European labs. European trainees will work and be trained by Australian malariologists using reciprocal EU support.
