Emanuel Wolinsky Award for Malaria Research at UNIMAS

A paper published in Clinical Infectious Diseases (CID) by researchers from the Malaria Research Centre (MRC), Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences, UNIMAS, and collaborators, received the Emanuel Wolinsky Award. The paper entitled ‘Plasmodium knowlesi malaria in humans is widely distributed and potentially life threatening’ by Janet Cox-Singh, Lee Kim Sung, Sunita Shamsul and Balbir Singh (MRC, UNIMAS), Tim Davis (University of Western Australia), Asmad Matusop (Sarawak Health Department) and Hasan Abdul Rahman (Pahang Health Department), was selected by the Editors of CID as the best original clinical research article published in CID for the year 2008. CID is one of the leading journals in infectious diseases with an impact factor of 6.75. The award letter from CID stated that the studies of Cox-Singh and colleagues have radically changed the view of the zoonotic potential of P. knowlesi. It further added that in their important article, the researchers retrospectively review the recent Malaysian experience with P. knowlesi infection, describe four fatal cases, and draw several important practical lessons from the experience.

Professor Janet Cox-Singh was presented with the award (a plaque and cheque for US $1,000) on 29th October 2009 at the 47th Annual Meeting of the Infectious Diseases Society of America in Philadelphia, USA. During her acceptance speech she said that discovering knowlesi was at times hard work but the research team felt privileged to do the work and in Malaysian Borneo. She further added that the research was made possible by support and encouragement from colleagues and friends in the field and financial support from the Wellcome Trust, the Malaysian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and UNIMAS. She concluded by saying that the research team were grateful to CID for publishing the findings and that they were immensely proud to receive the award.
