Membrane transport proteins of the malaria parasite and their roles in conferring drug resistance

Enquiries from prospective students are welcome.  Note, however, that we will not be taking on ASC or Summer Scholar students for the 2017-18 Summer.

The projects will generally be based on our current research interests:

  • Drug resistance in the human malaria parasite.
  • Design and evaluation of novel antimalarial drugs.
  • Identification and characterisation of membrane transport proteins.

Detailed descriptions of these topics are provided on Rowena's lab page. If there is a particular method or area you would like to focus on we will seek to design a project that will cater to these interests.
