An acclaimed scientist and malariologist, Dr. Plowe is recognized internationally for his groundbreaking work on the molecular epidemiology of drug-resistant and “vaccine-resistant” malaria. His malaria research group at the University of Maryland oversaw research in Africa, where he helped establish field research sites in Mali and Malawi, and in Asia, where he is a frequent traveler to new field sites in Myanmar.

While much of today's research on malaria focuses on developing new drugs or vaccines that might save lives in the future, Dr. Plowe's strategy aims to save lives right now by developing new tools to help countries eliminate malaria. His team is using molecular and genomics approaches to track the emergence and spread of drug resistance and to map the “silent reservoir” of malaria parasites responsible for transmission of new infections.

Research/Clinical Keywords

Malaria Drug Resistance, Malaria Genomic and Molecular Epidemiology, HIV-Malaria Interactions, Malaria Drug and Vaccine Efficacy
