Accelerating antimalarial drug discovery through collective expertise and resources

Today, the Malaria Drug Accelerator (MalDA) is a consortium of 18 different laboratories who have individually developed and maintained many of the platforms that contribute to early stage anti-malaria drug development including target discovery and validation.
