There will be two presentation on malaria research in Southeast Asia:"Clinical Malaria Research at the Armed Forces Research Institute of Medical Sciences, Bangkok, Thailand" - David Saunders, MAJ, MC, USA, and “Malaria in vitro Drug Resistance in Southeast Asia” - Stuart Tyner, MAJ, MS, USA

Stuart Tyner, PhD, MAJ, MS, USA, and David Saunders, MD, MPH, MAJ, MC, USA, along with their Cambodian collaborators have made efforts over the last five years to fight drug resistance to malaria in Cambodia and Thailand. Their research at the Armed Forces Research Institute of Medical Sciences is focused on isolating and addressing the emerging drug resistance in these areas. These efforts were supported by a number of organizations including: MMV/The Geneva Foundation, Cambodian National Malaria Program (CNM), WHO/BMGF, US GEIS program, US Army's Malaria Drug Programs (MIDRP, USAMMDA), and Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF).
