The top row shows the initial configuration. The second row shows the same configuration at the final iteration of our coupled tumor inversion and registration scheme. The three images on the bottom show the corresponding hard segmentation. The obtained atlas based segmentation (middle image) and the ground truth segmentation for the patient are very similar.

Human Malaria Parasites Grown for the First Time in Dormant Form

News

One of the biggest obstacles to eradicating malaria is a dormant form of the parasite which is resistant to most antimalarial drugs and can reawaken years later, causing disease relapse. Researchers have shown they can grow the dormant parasite in engineered human liver tissue for several weeks, allowing them to closely study how the parasite becomes dormant, what vulnerabilities it may have, and how it springs back to life.
