At the end of July 2023, Dr Marcus Lee and his research group will finalise the move of their Malaria Parasite Drug Resistance programme to the University of Dundee, where he is now Professor of Parasite Molecular Genetics.
Combining bold scientific leadership, deep operational expertise, and a knack for building community, Cristina Ariani is ready to take up her new role at the Sanger Institute and drive public health impact
25.04.15 Malaria parasites adapt at a frightening rate. A global collaboration has compiled a large collection of P. falciparum genomes and is using this resource to keep up.
11.09.14 Scientists across Africa have set up a network to track and rapidly respond to the emergence of antimalarial drug resistance. Sanger International Fellow Abdoulaye Djimdé explains why it's so vital
10.07.14 If we can understand the function of the proteins displayed on the surface of malaria parasites, we might be able to make highly effective vaccines
11 Sept 2012: The Malaria Programme at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is carrying out research addressing questions about the continuing emergence of drug resistance in malaria. Knowing which proteins in a cell are palmitoylated, specific protein-membrane interactions, can give important clues about their regulation or function—clues that can be used to piece together new ideas about how cells work.
