Malaria remains a global health priority, with substantial resources devoted to control and intervention since the causative parasite was first identified in 1880. Major advances have been made in discovery and translational research activities aimed at prevention, treatment and control. Laboratory-based, clinical, and field-based studies have complemented public health approaches. Australian scientists have played important roles, developing and applying innovative approaches, novel research tools and cutting-edge technologies in animal and human models of disease, as well as in disease-endemic settings. This article will provide an insight into 50 years of Australian efforts to discover mechanisms and targets of immunity and pathogenesis; develop new diagnostics, drugs, vaccines, and therapeutics; and assess new public health interventions and control measures in malaria-endemic settings.
