Clinical Trials Immunologist

Research

I work on the Clinical Trials conducted as part of the Blood-Stage Malaria Programme lead by Professor Simon Draper.

This programme includes both Phase I safety and immunogenicity studies and Phase II controlled human malaria infection studies. My role focuses on the characterisation of human humoral and cellular immune responses to the candidate vaccines and malaria exposure against both Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax.

Additionally, I work closely with collaborating field sites in Africa, to conduct Clinical Trials in a malaria-endemic setting.
