The CSIR, in collaboration with several partner institutions, has begun screening vast libraries of synthetic compounds that could be used in a new generation of antimalarial drugs. These drugs will disrupt the life cycle of the parasite (that causes malaria), paving the way for the eradication of the disease. Compounds have already been identified that meet the criteria and exhibit the ideal characteristics required for further development.
