Research Programme

The Berlin-Canberra alliance addresses fundamental issues in malaria through an International Research Training Program (IRTG 2290). Molecular insights into Plasmodium infections can generate novel evidence-based strategies to develop curative and prophylactic drugs, and immunization strategies that elicit lasting protection against the disease.

The program covers four research areas:

  1. Nutrient Uptake and Metabolism
  2. Parasite Genetics and Adaptations
  3. Immune Responses
  4. Host Genetics and Responses

All research projects will involve work carried out in both Berlin and Canberra and PhD students will graduate with a dual PhD from both the Humboldt University in Berlin and the Australian National University. PhD students in the program will have the opportunity to participate in a customized training program that includes voluntary internships and that will support students in acquiring critical skills to prepare for increasingly globalized and competitive public and private job markets. The program’s language is English.
