Exciting Research Published: Parasites under the Spotlight: Applications of Vibrational Spectroscopy to Malaria Research

Drs Evans and Hudson from the Department of Chemistry have co-authored a paper together with long standing collaborators from Monash University, an institution in Victoria, Australia.

The article published in Chemical Reviews (2018, 118 (11), pp 5330–5358), a journal of the American Chemical Society contains insights from research on the application of vibrational spectroscopic techniques for monitoring and detecting malaria infection at high sensitivity and specificity. New technologies to diagnose malaria are urgently needed in the developing world where the disease continues to pose a huge burden on society. Although the article is primarily a review, it also contains some new data recorded during a recent visit made by Dr Hudson to Monash University (supported by a Royal Society International Exchanges grant), which was analysed using multivariate algorithms back in Leicester by both Drs Hudson and Evans.
