The emergence of drug-resistant parasites and insecticide-resistant mosquitoes together with a neglect of control has allowed malaria to go on a rampage infecting an estimated 300-500 million people a year, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa. To truly eradicate this devastating disease, many believe a vaccine is urgently needed.  Come hear Ashley Vaughan, Ph.D. discuss the challenges and efforts the group he works in is taking to develop a malaria vaccine.

Queen Anne Science Café is held on the first Tuesday of each month. Did you miss a café and want to hear the discussion? Most Science Cafés are recorded by KCTS 9 and are available for online viewing. Queen Anne Science Cafes take place at T.S.
