I am a bit of a mess, but I like to pretend I'm just a Renaissance person. I majored in Architecture, worked in music (I am a horrible, horrible singer), was entrepreneur, left my footprint in travel journalism and ended up studying business at Stanford. I love people, design, adventures and Helvetica Neue. Sometimes it seems I am all over the place, but actually it's my well-defined strategy of changing the World. Yes, Daria believes she is changing the World.
Thank you for your contribution Grace C. ! Your post made me think of the article posted by Zaira Pérez - https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/09/130911093049.htm (Mosquito bites deliver potential new malaria vaccine). There are many similarities between what the Foundation intends to do and this study - and I think both are truly inspiring!
Hi Zaira Pérez - muchas gracias por tu contribución! Me gusto como aplicaste la ley '180' - si no lo puedes combatir, hazlo tu amigo. Me encanta! La pregunta es cuanto tiempo va a tardar este proceso desde la creación hasta las pruebas y hasta la solución recibe el acceso a la gente.
Minh Nguyen - check it out, Zaira is talking about a very interesting article: there is hope for new live-attenuated malaria vaccine. This work has genetically engineered malaria parasites that are stunted through precise gene deletions, and these could be used as a vaccine that protects against malaria infection. So instead of bringing infections to us, mosquitos can bring vaccines. I think that looks great.
