The Forever War | The New York Academy of SciencesPosted: April 5, 2012
This battle against malaria—its theaters, its successes, its failures, and its future—was the focus of The Forever War: Malaria versus the World symposium at the New York Academy of Sciences on November 16, 2011. The conference was presented by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHBSPH) and the New York Academy of Sciences in honor of the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute (JHMRI). The symposium featured presentations from the world’s leading physicians, public health experts, and scientists who combat malaria head-on in the disease’s most endemic areas or on a molecular level in laboratories all over the globe. Mayor Michael Bloomberg was also in attendance not only to congratulate the Malaria Research Institute on its anniversary, but also to commend the Institute’s members for their efforts to combat this devastating disease.
