Discovery and Development of Novel Antimalarials and Their Use as Chemical Tools to Discover New Biology of the Malaria Parasite – WEHI’s Prof. Alan F. Cowman

Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Location: Hybrid: In-Person and Zoom (Audience limited to Tufts Members and Affiliates; please contact CIMAR@tufts.edu for more details.)
Levy CIMAR Science Lunch

We are excited to announce our first seminar speaker for the 2023-2024 academic year, Professor Alan F. Cowman, who among his many roles is acting Director of Australia’s Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (WEHI). An internationally acclaimed expert in malaria research, Prof. Cowman heads a laboratory at WEHI where he and his team aim to advance the understanding of how malaria-causing parasites invade human cells. The seminar—Discovery and Development of Novel Antimalarials and Their Use as Chemical Tools to Discover New Biology of the Malaria Parasite—will take place on Thursday, September 28th, at 12 noon both via Zoom and in person. Details to come.

Prof. Cowman and his lab study Plasmodium falciparum and other Plasmodium spp. to determine how they infect humans and cause disease. The team collaborate with the Merck pharmaceutical company to develop novel antimalarials, and this academic/industrial collaboration has resulted in development of a clinical candidate that is now in first-in-human clinical trials.
