Translational Research in Malaria

Professor Parikh's research interests focus on translational studies of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa. Dr. Parikh focuses upon several aspects of malaria: early host immune responses to infection, human genetics, and treatment. Current projects include: (1) understanding host factors affecting response to artemisinin-based antimalarial therapies using a combination of individual and population-based pharmacologic approaches to inform treatment guidelines; 2) characterizing the impact of host genetic and transcriptional variability in early immune responses to malaria; and 3) understanding the impact of the HIV epidemic on the treatment of malaria in co-endemic regions.
