(Malaria Infection Study in Thailand)

The Malaria Infection Study in Thailand (MIST) is a program of research to accelerate development of vaccine and drugs for Plasmodium vivax. MIST is a collaboration between the Mahidol Vivax Research Unit (MVRU) and Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU), funded by Wellcome, UK. The studies will involve carefully giving a controlled number of parasites to healthy volunteers and will be conducted at the Faculty of Tropical Medicine, which has a Clinical Research Centre, in dedicated, modern, well equipped facilities. The team has more than 50 years’ experience conducting world-class malaria research. The research will provide the platform for testing potential vaccines and drugs as well as other interventions for P. vivax. https://mist.in.th
