Following a successful turnout for part 1 of our series of public lectures with Dr. Kenny at the Malaria Museum Dublin, we are excited to inform you about part 2.  

Prof. Gus Bell, will speak about ‘Antimalarial therapy: an arms race between humans and parasites’ at the Tropical Medical Bureau, at 18.30 on Mon. 12th May.  All times will be listed on our website and Facebook page.

“Antimalarial therapy: an arms race between humans and parasites.”

We are currently witnessing a drive to make malaria the second infectious disease of humans to be wiped off the face of the planet (the first was smallpox).  Antimalarial drugs will be important weapons in this eradication campaign.  But with drug-resistant parasites continuing to emerge and spread over the globe, we have to fight hard even to stand still in this war against malaria.  We need new drugs – but where are they going to come from?
Gus Bell is an Associate Professor of Microbiology at Trinity College Dublin and has worked for almost 25 years in malaria research.

MALARIA MUSEUM Dublin’s very own Pop-up Malaria Museum opened in TMB’s headquarters at the top of Grafton Street on 25th April 2014. The Malaria Museum is a quirky experiential space, educating visitors with a variety of historical artefacts and interactive art works.

While the pop-up museum coincided with World Malaria Day, on April 25th, making Dublin part of a Global conversation about malaria, the Malaria Museum website will remain a permanent virtual space to bring together the different voices from around the world that are working to end malaria.

To highlighting the vital work undertaken by different national and international organisations, we have invited Ireland’s visual artists to engage with topic creating the opportunity to use artistic expression in an informative and educational way, making the information more tangible to the general public.

A group of  talented Irish visual artists have collaborated with museum, developing concepts with understanding that the museum’s purpose is to embrace the artistic process and to educate the public by engagement with the visual arts. Growing the exhibition space into a virtual community where ideas can be generated, shared, and refined.

Through entertaining, fun and interactive exhibits, both physical and online, the museum will educate the visitor about the history of malaria, its importance as a disease, current efforts to control it and future prospects regarding its eradication. By also acting as an independent forum where people working on malaria can share their work, the museum will contribute to the control and eradication of the disease.
