Structural insights into severe malaria

Monday 10 February 2020, 1.00PM

Speaker(s): Professor Matthew Higgins, Department of Biochemistry, University of Oxford

Matthew will discuss how structural studies of host-parasite interactions in malaria have provided insight into erythrocyte invasion and accumulation of infected-erythrocytes within human tissues. He will also show how structural analysis of human antibody responses to vaccination is revealing novel mechanisms of antibody-mediated inhibition and is guiding rational vaccine development.
