Volunteers needed for malaria research

Researchers need healthy adult male volunteers with type O+ blood to study malaria parasites and to sustain mosquito colonies used in crucial malaria research. This study involves a blood draw about every eight weeks, and participants will be paid $75 at each visit.

You may qualify if you:

  • Are 18 or older
  • Have O+ blood type
  • Have not traveled to or lived in a malaria endemic area in the past 10 years
  • Are not regularly taking a prescription or over-the-counter medication
  • Are willing to undergo multiple blood draws

If you think you may be eligible and are interested in participating, call 443-287-7156 or email DDUResearch@jhmi.edu.
