Malaria

Overview

We conduct multi-disciplinary research that ranges from concepts to implementation research.

 

Our key research interests include:

  • Understanding the molecular and biochemical basis of antimalarial drug resistance
  • Understanding the interplay between genetic diversity of malaria parasites, parasite virulence, drug resistance, and scaling up of control interventions
  • Identifying host immunological factors that determine whether malaria patients transition from asymptomatic parasitaemia or uncomplicated malaria to severe malaria
  • Optimizing malaria treatment, with a particular focus on drug safety and improving dosing regimens for use in global transmission reduction settings
  • Investigating the impact of HIV infection and its treatment on malaria immunity
  • Understanding of the factors that influence coverage and uptake of the malaria in pregnancy prevention measures
  • Development and application of tools to effectively monitor and accelerate progress of malaria transmission reduction efforts
