PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Design and evaluation of novel antimalarial drugs

Recent publications have identified a number of novel quinoline and acridone compounds that appear to either reverse or evade the chloroquine-resistance mechanism in vitro, and which are considered to be promising leads for the development of new antimalarials (Burgess et al. J Med Chem 2006; 49:5623-5, October et al.

This project is open to Honours, Bachelor, Masters and PhD students
