Greetings Profs,

After having listened to your discussions on Plasmodium (TWiP 64), I explored papers on treatment options that are actually available. After having read some papers, I realized that one of the main roadblocks are the hypnozoites. If I have got it right, apart from the fact that it is involved in reactivation of infection, it's dormant nature allows it to evade the antibiotics. My first thought was "Can the hypnozoites activate the immune system, and can it be a vaccine target." Your thoughts on this would be very helpful.

In connection with the search, I found a paper in nature, cited below which i find is a worthwhile discussion topic on malaria.

Host-cell sensors for Plasmodium activate innate immunity against liver-stage infection

Thank you for all the time spent on educating us

Hi Vincent and Dickson,

I just want to let you know that I would very much like to attend a Coursera course on ecology lead by Dickson! I really enjoy episodes such as TWiP 65, where ecology, parasitism and various infectious diseases are intertwined and would love to learn more about the ecological aspects. However, as I study purely infectionbiology I don't have the mental strength to start studying ecology on my free time, as I feel it is hard to know from where to start. Here, I think, a web-based course would be a great way for me to learn more and would keep my interests up with Dickson spicing up the potential future lectures with references to both parasitism and vertical farming! I really hope this materializes.

best regards,
Kim
