David ConwayDepartment of Pathogen Molecular Biology, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK F1000 Faculty Member (since 27 November 2008)
Professor of Biology
David leads a research group with a focus on malaria, particularly: (i) the effects of natural selection on parasite antigens that are the targets of protective immune responses, (ii) naturally acquired immune responses and their relevance to protection, (iii) the effects of different epidemiological situations on parasite population genetic structures, (iv) erythrocyte invasion phenotypes of merozoites. This work has been funded by grants from the Wellcome Trust, the UK Medical Research Council (MRC), the Royal Society, and the EU.
Between 2005 and 2010 he was Head of the Malaria Research Programme at the MRC Laboratories in The Gambia, where he led work supported by the MRC and several other funders. He also collaborates in studies of endemic malaria in Kenya (with Prof Kevin Marsh in Kenya), Ghana (with Dr Gordon Awandare), Malaysia (with Prof Balbir Singh), and elsewhere.
