News & Announcements

An international research team led by Akhil B. Vaidya, PhD, professor in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology and director of the Center for Molecular Parasitology at Drexel University College of Medicine, has discovered a new class of drug compounds that could lead to potent new treatments in the battle against malaria. The results from preclinical studies are set for online publication in the November 25 edition of Nature Communications. The compounds affect the malaria parasites' ability to maintain adequate levels of sodium within their cells, leading to excessive water intake, which causes the parasites to burst.


As the linked epidemics of obesity and diabetes continue to escalate, a staggering one in five U.S. adults is projected to have diabetes by 2050.

Drexel University Online hosted its eighth annual awards ceremony celebrating exceptional leaders, faculty and staff at a November 11, 2014 event held at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University.


The Drexel Medicine Women's Care Center will be providing on-site services to assist patients in enrolling in health insurance, thanks to the extension of a grant from the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association.
