We are particularly interested in understanding how drug pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics translate into different evolutionary pressures for the emergence and spread of drug resistant parasites. We developed a within host model that captures the dynamics of parasite asexual and sexual replication cycles, thus allowing us to correlate the total infectiousness of certain parasite populations, given the administration of different drug regiments and combinations.
