Malaria kills almost 1 million children every year, and infects more than 300 million people every year.

Focus

Our lab focuses on 5 major problem areas in malaria:

  1. the relationship of changing transmission conditions to the development of immunity in malaria
  2. environmental predictors of malaria risk in epidemic-prone areas
  3. the pathogenesis of cerebral malaria, with a particular focus on how the immune response to malaria relates to long-term neurologic and cognitive impairment in children with cerebral malaria
  4. the interaction between iron deficiency and malaria
  5. risk of malaria in children with sickle cell disease
