The U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED) has released the newest episode of its show, "Scrubbing In." The new episode features malaria research experts from Navy Medicine's Infectious Disease Directorate at the Naval Medical Research Center (NMRC) in Silver Spring, Maryland. During the episode, viewers learn how Navy Medicine researchers use mosquitos in a controlled laboratory environment to develop vaccines for diseases such as malaria. The vaccines developed by Naval Medical Research Center are used to treat Navy and Marine Corps service members, as well as the local populations where service members are deployed. The episode on malaria research is available on YouTube. A previous episode on vaccine development at NMRC is available online.
