Strategic Focus

The group seeks to contribute to the generation of knowledge and its application to solve problems related to malaria, intestinal parasites, and malnutrition.

Research Areas and Topics

  • Antimalarials.
  • Social determinants of malaria and associated infections.
  • Immunity, nutrition, and infection.
  • Gestational, congenital, and placental malaria.
  • Diagnostic procedures and tests.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

 Good health and well-being

Scientific Cooperation

Collaborative Relationships

Joint work with research groups:

  • GIMBIC (Universidad de Cordoba, Colombia).
  • ISGlobal (Barcelona, Spain).
  • Dr. Stephanie K. Yanow (University of Alberta, Canada).

Notable Projects

  • Characterization of exosomes in pregnant and non-pregnant women with malaria-geohelminthiasis coinfection and their immunomodulatory effect in placenta and peripheral blood.
  • Gestational and placental malaria in Colombia: Clinical, ecoepidemiological, and social approach.
  • Prevalence and effects of co-infection with Plasmodium spp and geohelminths in pregnant women in Colombian malarial areas.
  • Maternal and neonatal immunomodulation by placental plasmodial infection and maternal geohelminthiasis and its effect on the immune response to vaccine antigens.
  • Gestational Plasmodium vivax infection: Immunopathogenesis, histopathology, and plasmodial genetics, and its effects on maternal, fetal and neonatal morbimortality in northwestern Colombia, 2016-2018.

Main Research Results

  • The pathogenic capacity of Plasmodium vivax to generate placental malaria and congenital malaria has been established.
  • Pregnancy-associated malaria, both in the mother and placenta, has been shown to affect the immune response of the mother and her neonate to expanded program on immunization vaccines.
  • The histopathological profile of placental malaria has been identified in northwestern Colombia.
  • The profile of immune, inflammatory, and other mediators in both maternal peripheral blood and placental tissue blood has been partially characterized.

Research Portafolio

  • We offer expert advice, training, and continuing education in the three issues we evaluate (malaria, intestinal parasites, and malnutrition), especially if focused on the population of pregnant women and children under 15 years of age.
  • We advise on the development of research projects on the above topics.
  • We offer training in malaria diagnostic procedures.
  • We offer academic and research internships for students and health professionals from Colombia and other countries.
