Derbyshire Lab Targets Malaria

The Derbyshire Lab reports the discovery of inhibitors that target multiple stages of malaria  parasite growth. To identify these inhibitors Derbyshire took advantage of the TCAMS small molecule library, which is comprised of diverse and potent chemical scaffolds with activities against malaria's blood stage and investigated their effects against malaria's elusive liver stage using a forward chemical screen.  More on their recent developments may be found here in Antimibrobial Agents and Chemotherapy.
