Schools Malaria Project
Schools Malaria Project
The Schools Malaria Project (http://emalaria.soton.ac.uk/) brings together
school students with university researchers in the hunt for a new anti-
malaria drug. Malaria kills a child every thirty seconds, and 40% of the
world’s population lives in countries where the disease is endemic.
Resistance to existing drugs is increasing and there is a growing need for
new compounds. This challenge is being offered to school students who
will use a distributed drug search and selection system via a web interface to design potential drugs. The project will display the results of the trials in an accessible manner, giving students an opportunity for discussion and debate both with peers and with university contacts.

Abstract

The Schools Malaria Project (http://emalaria.soton.ac.uk/) brings together
school students with university researchers in the hunt for a new anti-
malaria drug. Malaria kills a child every thirty seconds, and 40% of the
world’s population lives in countries where the disease is endemic.
Resistance to existing drugs is increasing and there is a growing need for
new compounds. This challenge is being offered to school students who
will use a distributed drug search and selection system via a web interface to design potential drugs. The project will display the results of the trials in an accessible manner, giving students an opportunity for discussion and debate both with peers and with university contacts.
