Linda Amoah - (NMIMR) : An effective malaria vaccine is key to sustainable control and elimination strategies. My laboratory is taking an integrated approach to both evaluate malaria transmission in the field and design new transmission blocking agents, including the identification and characterization of host receptors for gametocyte surface ligands.
In addition to producing and evaluating the efficacy of transmission blocking malaria vaccine candidates, I have projects in place to evaluate the development of transmission blocking immunity and the production of gametocytes during a natural infection. I am also very interested in identifying host genetic determinants of malaria pathogenesis and transmission traits as well as genetic determinants of other diseases including non-communicable diseases (NCDs)....(Read more...)
