Terrie's TED talk: Unlocking the Mysteries of Cerebral Malaria
“It’s gut-wrenching when children die from malaria, but what keeps us going is that we are making progress against this Voldemort of parasites. It’s an elusive quarry, but have it cornered.”
Dr. Terrie Taylor describes her 28+ years of research on cerebral malaria in children in Malawi. A new MRI machine there helped unlock mysteries and now she is working on new medical interventions. It’s an important problem, but it’s solvable, she says, with continued research and clinical trials.
