Raising the curtain on cerebral malaria’s deadly agents
Using state-of-the-art brain imaging technology, scientists at the National Institutes of Health filmed what happens in the brains of mice that developed cerebral malaria (CM). The results, published in PLOS Pathogens, reveal the processes that lead to fatal outcomes of the disease and suggest an antibody therapy that may treat it.
Fall 2016 marked a number of exciting and innovative changes to flagship training programs supported by NINDS. By restructuring these key training mechanisms, NINDS hopes to strengthen our commitment to improve training for early-career neuroscientists and bolster their transition to independent research careers.
