Summary

François Nosten has built an unmatched international resume in malaria. The Shoklo Malaria Research Unit, which he founded 25 years ago on the politically sensitive and occasionally violent border between Thailand and Myanmar, formerly Burma, not only provides basic health services to tens of thousands of poor people, but it's also one of the most respected and prolific clinical malaria research centers in the world. With more than 230 published papers, including co-authorship of a report on page 1175 of this issue of Science, Nosten ranks as one of the 10 most-cited researchers in his field.
