The Seattle MCTC conducts a variety of studies to investigate, treat, and prevent malaria infection in human beings. Healthy volunteers are key to our success in this mission. Many past volunteers have enjoyed the trial experience and even return to participate a second time.
We also offer other ways to participate in our malaria work. Here are some ways you can get involved right now.
Our malaria study volunteer registry is for anyone interested in participating in a future malaria study. Volunteers are asked to answer some basic questions about their health history, demographics, and trial participation preferences. When a new study opens, Seattle MCTC staff reach out to registry participants to see who might be interested. This is a great way to stay informed of all Seattle MCTC trial activity!
A new study is testing volunteers who spent their childhood years in areas where malaria is widespread. We would like to see if these individuals have a malaria infection at such low levels that the infection is not causing symptoms. If you have lived in a malaria-endemic area for much of your life, we would like to hear from you!
