Future global warming could lead to a significant increase in malaria cases in densely populated regions of Africa and South America unless disease monitoring and control efforts are increased, researchers said Thursday.
In a study of the mosquito-borne disease that infects around 220 million people a year, researchers from Britain and the United States found what they describe as the first hard evidence that malaria creeps to higher elevations during warmer years and back down to lower altitudes when temperatures cool.
This in turn “suggests that with progressive global warming, malaria will creep up the mountains and spread to new high-altitude areas,” said Menno Bouma, an honorary clinical lecturer at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM).

I am 80% sure I’m going to Tufts. My dad’s visiting in a couple of weeks and we’re going to visit the campus so that I can show him that not-Ivy League doesn’t necessarily mean not amazing.
Any other pre-vets out there headed for TCSVM next year?
