Malaria laboratory

The MORU Malaria laboratory, Bangkok, Thailand provides facilities and resources to researchers, students, and collaborators who are interested in tropical diseases. We aim to generate new knowledge in order to improve patients’ care.  Major research areas of interest are the pathophysiology of malaria, host-parasite interaction, the pharmacodynamics of antimalarial drugs, the mechanism of antimalarial drug resistance, and the development diagnostic tools.  Currently, we have 5 PhD students and 9 scientists working in our laboratory.
