Host: Mary Leuchars, MD

Each year, over one million people die of malaria and its complications. Can malaria ever be eliminated, and is a malaria vaccine the answer? Speaking with host Dr. Mary Leuchars on this important subject is Dr. William Collins, senior biomedical research scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Collins has been a leading expert on malaria and antimalarial vaccine developments for the past 50 years. In this interview he describes a hopeful beginning for malaria vaccines, predicated on research from the past 20 years, toward eliminating the disease burden globally.
