Executive Summary

A consortium of researchers at the universities of Nottingham, Leicester, Oxford, Imperial College London, and Leiden and the MRC National Institute for Medical Research has discovered a potential new target in the fight against malaria. The collaborators have identified a protein – CDC20 – that has a key role in the cell division cycle of the malaria parasite Plasmodium berghei and the development of microgametes, which are essential for transmission between humans and the mosquito carrier.
