Thanks for the amazing lecture. If we were to design a vaccine for malaria which unique protein or gene has better chance for successful vaccine?

Professor Carpenter,

I truly appreciate your guidance. I was always tending towards Biochemistry – now I am certain I will choose that major. Thank you!
