Clinical Trial Volunteers
Volunteer for Malaria Research Studies
Healthy adults aged 18-50 years are needed for participation
In 2010, there were an estimated 216 million cases of malaria worldwide. Currently, there is no effective malaria vaccine.
This study tests if an experimental vaccine is safe and can prevent infection following exposure to the malaria parasite. If the vaccine does not prevent infection and volunteers develop malaria symptoms, they will receive immediate treatment which is curative.
Study volunteers will be compensated for participation up to $2245-$4070
