Griffith University scientists have helped discover new compounds which could help block the transmission of the deadly disease malaria.
A team of Griffith researchers has found a novel class of compounds, the hexahydro quinoline (HHQ), with potent activity against the parasite stages responsible for the clinical symptoms of malaria and its transmission to mosquitoes.
A “Malaria Box” that could hold the answer to discovering new drugs to treat tropical diseases and cancer has been created for researchers around the world. Griffith University tropical disease researchers have joined together with a host of international laboratories to advance drug discovery for major topical diseases through the creation and testing of the […]
Griffith University researchers are tackling the enormous global health problem of malaria through innovative approaches to develop new vaccine and drug candidates. At Griffith’s two leading biomedical research institutes – the Institute for Glycomics and the Eskitis Institute for Drug Discovery – research teams are firmly focused on, and are making progress towards the global […]
