Malaria Box type of research

The Malaria Box was available for free upon request from December 2011 - December 2015. More than 250 Malaria Boxes were dispatched to 30 countries, including malaria-endemic and non-endemic countries.

Requesting institutions showed a range of interest regarding the field of study, with roughly 70% malaria related and the remainder focusing on the activity of the compounds against neglected tropical diseases and other infectious diseases.

Approximately 60% of the malaria research is focused on identifying new inhibitors for a specific antimalarial target, whereas scientists interrogating the Malaria Box in other disease areas are mainly focusing (about 80%) on phenotypic screens.
