Research focuses on malaria vivax vaccines and dengue vaccines. Of the two malaria parasites with the greatest prevalence, Plasmodium vivax is the most difficult to eliminate from endemic areas because of its ability to remain dormant as hypnozoites in the liver of an infected person for weeks, months or years to later reactivate and continue with the transmission cycle. My ongoing research focuses on the development of a novel malaria vaccine against P. vivax using recombinant viral vectors expressing pre-erythrocytic antigens.
