3D4D2 - 3D polymer matrix device for dual drug delivery and simultaneous treatment of acute malaria and malaria transmission
Role of Polymer Separation Group (IPF): advanced analysis and project coordination
Project description: The project focuses on the development of a sustainable approach for the treatment and prevention of malaria by using existing technologies and antimalarial medicine that has been prove to be most effective against the malaria parasite. A custom-designed polymer-based system will be developed that will be able to administrate multiple antimalarial drugs in a controllable manner to treat the entire cycle of the malaria disease to ensure long lasting benefits. The device will attempt to simultaneously treat acute malaria and eliminate malaria distribution by the blocking of malaria transmission in one single application.
Project duration: 2021 - 2024
Funded by: European Commission - M-era.Net
