Dr Colin Sutherland presents ‘Measuring the impact of malaria drug resistance on transmission in endemic areas, and on travellers to the tropics’, on Monday 27 August, from 12pm to 1pm.
At the Hospital for Tropical Diseases in London a variety of molecular techniques are being applied to examine markers of drug resistance in returning travellers. In his presentation, Dr Sutherland will provide an overview of malaria drug resistance in sub-Saharan Africa, including the impact of resistant parasites on communities living with endemic malaria. He will also present some malaria case histories from travellers presenting in London, including molecular analysis of parasite isolates.
Dr Sutherland is a senior lecturer, Malaria Reference Laboratory, with the Department of Infectious and Tropical Diseases, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine; and Clinical Scientist Department of Clinical Parasitology Hospital for Tropical Diseases.
This seminar takes place in the Menzies Seminar Room, John Mathews Building, Royal Darwin Hospital Campus.
