ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:

Show the malaria parasite's life cycle in a clear way!

Every year more than 300 million people catch malaria and one million people die from it. It has devastating consequences for a large proportion of the human population. There is also a connection with sickle cell disease.

Malaria is caused by the unicellular Plasmodium parasite that is spread by mosquitos. Plasmodium has a complex life cycle involving human and mosquito hosts. Our innovative model shows how this life cycle happens in a clear way. It also shows how sickle cell disease has played a role in protecting carriers from malaria in many parts of the world.

It covers: merozoite, sporozoite, oocysts, gametocytes and what happens during each step of the Plasmodium life cycle.

Origami Organelles are downloadable paper models that you print and make as many times as you like! When you purchase a model, you are licensed for unlimited use on a single site or campus.
