According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2015, an estimated 438,000 people died due to malaria infection. There is currently no vaccine against malaria. Researchers at National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center are recruiting healthy adults, ages 18-50, to undergo an initial assessment to determine if they will qualify for future malaria studies. These future studies may involve evaluation of experimental medications, vaccines and vaccine strategies to prevent malaria.

All study-related tests are provided at no cost to you. Compensation is provided.

You may be eligible for this screening study if you:

  • Are healthy between the ages of 18 - 50
  • Have no history of being diagnosed with malaria in the last 10 years
  • Have not received an investigational malaria vaccine in the past 5 years
  • Are not pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant in the upcoming year (females only)
  • Have reliable access to the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland
  • Available for the duration of at least 1 year
