It takes 13-15 years to discover and develop a new antimalarial. This graphic takes you through the complex process. Read more below.


MMV’s portfolio is the most robust and diverse portfolio of antimalarial drug projects in history. Our ultimate goal is to build a strong pipeline of molecules leading to a new generation of medicines that will form a critical part of the arsenal needed to eradicate malaria. The process to discover and develop a new antimalarial ready to be delivered to those in need normally takes between 13-15 years.
