Life Cycle of Malaria Parasite in Human Host

This amazing animation, developed with support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, shows exactly what happens when a malaria-carrying mosquito bites a human host. The parasite enters the bloodstream, multiplies in the liver cells, and is then released back into the bloodstream, where it infects and destroys red blood cells.
