Professor Geoffrey McFadden

Research interests

Malaria and endosymbiosis

The McFadden Lab identifies new drug targets in the malaria parasite and seeks strategies to control the ever increasing problem of drug resistance. We work with human and rodent malaria models and have a complete life cycle facility in which we infect mosquitoes to study transmission of the disease from vertebrate to vertebrate via insects.

Research projects

  • Learning parasite molecular genetics, high end microscopy, and potentially some insect or mouse work for suitable students
