17 September 2010

Dr Rowena Martin of the ANU RSB received one of just two ACT Young Tall Poppy Science Awards (2010).

Dr Martin's work has made a major contribution to our understanding of basic biology and the mechanisms of drug resistance. Her research group has been working on the resistance to chloroquine by mutations of the malaria parasite. They are now focused on creating new chloroquine-like drugs that will have impacts on a global scale.
