MESA News: News from MESA: Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Programme (MLW) shares research portfolio on MESA Track database

MLW has become one of the first African research centres to share their portfolio of research relevant to the malaria elimination and eradication agenda in the open database 'MESA Track'. This is all thanks to the close collaboration of the MLW team and especially of Anja Terlouw (Malaria theme lead at MLW) who said: "This is an important initiative that I am keen to support".

MESA Track is a growing database of research projects relevant to malaria elimination. Click here to access the MLW portfolio. Projects include:

A study to develop new subdistrict-level surveillance tools to help guide the targeted use of interventions to reduce transmission;

Clinical studies of the safety of higher dose DHA-ppq in young children, which the researchers expect will contribute valuable data to determining safe dose regimens for MDA strategies;

A project that quantifies the role that human mobility plays in malaria transmission.

MESA Track is an open, growing database and researchers can directly submit their work via a simple online form. The MESA Secretariat is working with other research institutions and funders, including other Wellcome Trust partners to compile their portfolios and share them online.
