ERC Advanced Grant

The lab has been awarded € 2.5 mio for genetic screens to identify Plasmodium berghei fertility genes at Umeå University. Sexual reproduction of malaria parasites is essential for their transmission by mosquitoes and it is expected that the funded project will identify may candidates to serve as starting points for future strategies to block the transmission of human malaria.
