Overview

The objective of the project is to extensively review published literature to compile evidence related to the clinical consequences of asymptomatic (low density) malaria infections.

This project is based at our Kelvin Grove campus.

Research activities

Research activities include a literature search and review

This project will use standard literature search methods, with a systematic approach to the review of the literature. You'll develop data extraction tables, and calculate simple statistics.

A suitable work space and computer will be available for this project. At least one project supervisor will be available to support you on a day-to-day basis.

Outcomes

The outcomes of the review will provide evidence to guide policy on malaria treatment, and desired sensitivities of malaria diagnostic tests.

Skills and experience

You should have:

  • experience with database and literature searching
  • an understanding of epidemiological principles.
