Pan-African Malaria Genetic Epidemiology Network (PAMGEN)


  1. Create sustainable, innovative strategies and methods to collect, manage, share and analyze standardised data on human and parasite genetic variation, gene-disease association, and gene-environment interactions
  2. Nurture African leadership by identifying and training the next generation of African researchers through advanced degree programs in genetics and genomics; large-scale data analysis; and bioethics.
  3. Use human, parasite, and vector population and functional genomics research to drive the development of new tools to support malaria elimination programs across Africa.
Rationale and Abstract

This project aims to create a robust network of African scientists – within and outside Africa– in collaboration with leading researchers around the world, who use the latest genetics and genomics science to contribute towards malaria elimination efforts in Africa. By combining data from across the continent and from across human, parasite, and vector samples, PAMGEN will better understand the deadly evolutionary arms race of malaria.
