Meeting Summary: This Keystone Symposium provides the most comprehensive look at the cutting edge of the science of malaria eradication as it advances. For the first time since the paradigm shift from malaria control to the interruption of transmission, research, development, innovation and lessons learned will all be captured. The central goal of the meeting is to provide a unique and needed space for malaria eradication scientists to share new information and advance the scientific debate. As the field develops and results emerge, so too will the questions which need to be answered. The meeting facilities crossfertilisation between disciplines, which all have a role in advancing the science of malaria eradication. Further, in an environment conducive to creative thinking, an anticipated outcome of the meeting is the generation of ideas and the next priorities for the scientific community to tackle. Other disease eradication efforts, past and present, have taught us the critical role of research and development. The publication of the malaria eradication research agenda (malERA) in 2011 laid the foundation for this R&D effort. This meeting would serve as a significant milestone in the continual development of this research agenda. By showcasing new evidence, emerging data and new challenges the meeting aims to catalyze ideas across multiple disciplines and catalyze research activities in the field.
