Heidelberg University Hospital is one of the largest and most prestigious medical centres in Germany. The Medical Faculty of Heidelberg University is one of the most internationally renowned biomedical research institutions in Europe.

2 000 beds. Currently, about 3 400 future physicians are studying in Heidelberg; the reform Heidelberg Curriculum Medicinale (HeiCuMed) is one of the top medical training programs in Germany.
Objectives of the clinical parasitology group, department of infectious diseases
Our group aims to improve the impact of pharmacological interventions for the control and, eventually, the elimination of malaria. This involves improving our understanding of drug-parasite and parasite-host interactions that favor the evolution of drug resistance in malaria parasites.
