Researchers at the University of Zambia are working to develop new drugs for ​human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) and schistosomiasis, screening and validating traditional medicines for their antimicrobial and antiviral properties, and exploring the potential etiologies of brain swelling in cerebral malaria. In addition to their drug discovery work, UNZA investigators are developing new diagnostics for dual-schistosome infections, using rats to detect Mtb infections, and improving diagnostic methods for malaria.
