Novel diagnostics for serological surveillance and treatment of malaria (ID Epi Seminar Series)
May 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Michael White leads the Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Analytics (IDEA) G5 Unit in the Department of Global Health at Institut Pasteur. His team uses inter-disciplinary research tools spanning mathematical models, epidemiological cohort studies, and multiplex assays to investigate the epidemiology of infectious diseases. A key goal is the development of multiplex assays and statistical tools for integrated surveillance of multiple pathogens. Despite this multi-pathogen focus, he has a special fondness for malaria and neglected tropical diseases, and his favourite parasite is definitely Plasmodium vivax. Like many other researchers, he has developed an interest in coronaviruses, and has made some small contributions in the development of novel serological assays.
