Abstract: The Schools Malaria Project (http://emalaria.soton.ac.uk/) brings together school students with university researchers in the hunt for a new anti-malaria drug. Malaria kills a child every thirty seconds and 40% of the world’s population lives in countries where the disease is endemic. Resistance to existing drugs is growing and there is a growing need for new compounds. This challenge is being offered to school students who will use a distributed drug search and selection system via a web interface. They will be investigating the potential of a family of small molecules as drugs. The project will display the results of the trials in an accessible manner, giving students an opportunity for discussion and debate both with peers and with university contacts.
