Hypoglycaemia and lactic acidosis are key diagnostics for poor chances of survival in malaria patients. In this project we aim to test to what extent the metabolic activity of Plasmodium falciparum contributes to a changed glucose metabolism in malaria patients. The approach is to start with detailed bottom up models for the parasite and then merge these with more coarse grained models at the whole body level.

The investigation entails the construction and validation of a detailed mathematical model for glycolysis of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum in the blood stage trophozoite form.
