Global health officials struggling to curb the spread of malaria continue to face the additional challenge of drug resistance—leaving scientists in search of new models for effective treatment and prevention. In response to this problem, a team at Notre Dame put out a call to the masses, enlisting researchers, data scientists and health professionals to analyze genomic data from emerging drug-resistant malaria parasites and gain a better understanding of the mechanisms of resistance.
A University of Notre Dame research team used mathematical modeling, which showed combining mass drug distribution with removing vegetation may be the quickest way to curb transmission.
The University of Notre Dame announced Wednesday (Nov. 20) that it has suspended spring 2020 programming at three Hong Kong universities because escalating violence poses an unacceptable risk to the 14 Notre Dame students slated to attend classes there.
