During the last few years, Professor Lars Hviid and Professor Anja Ramstedt Jensen from Centre for Medical Parasitology at the Department of Immunology and Microbiology, UCPH,  have spent many, many hours editing this new book ‘Malaria Immunlogoy - Targeting the Surface of Infected Erythrocytes’. The book aims to be a useful and practical guide to researches to help further their study in this field.

The book is a very comprehensive collection - 57 chapters, 791 pages - of protocols covering virtually all aspects of the part of malaria research that concerns the parasites in the red blood cells. It includes cutting-edge methods and protocols and provides step-by-step detail essential for reproducible results. It also contains key notes and implementation advice from the all the contributing experts. There are chapters, that detail research on collecting parasites in the field, single molecule-level analyses of adhesive interactions, and focused studies aiming at disrupting the devastating disease.

The book is written in the format of the Methods in Molecular Biology-series, where each chapter includes an introduction to the topic, lists necessary materials and reagents, includes tips on troubleshooting and known pitfalls.
