In collaboration with the Keystone Symposia, MESA brings you this SciTalk from the "Malaria: From Innovation to Eradication" conference in Uganda, February 2017

Title: "Evaluation of diagnostic strategies and the inclusion of placental malaria as potential etiology of low birth weight in newborns from an endemic area for malaria in Colombia"

Speaker: Erika Francisca Garrido Zea, UniRemington, Colombia

In February 2017, malaria experts from around the world gathered in Kampala, Uganda at "Malaria: From Innovation to Eradication", a conference organized by Keystone Symposia in collaboration with MESA.  SciTalks are in-conference short talks and poster presentations recorded on video and shared on the Internet, and are designed to extend the reach of the science present within each Keystone Symposia conference.
