This project will formalize a multi-institutional, multi-national collaboration between malaria.

Researchers and public health officials in the United States, Angola and Portugal, with the ultimate goal of developing an independently-funded consortium of investigators to conduct malaria research that informs public health decisions in Angola and contributes to the training and career development of students and other researchers at all three sites. The institutions involved include the Institute for Genome Sciences and the Institute for Vaccine Development and Global Health, at the University of Maryland, Baltimore; the Institute for Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, NOVA University, in Lisbon, Portugal; and the National Institute for Health Research, in Luanda, Angola. Consortium members envision outreach to other malaria research stakeholders in Angola.
