If you have a question about this talk, please contact Francesco Paolo Casale.

Dr Oliver Billker is a faculty member at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. He is interested in how malaria parasites respond to and modify their environment in order to colonise their hosts. His research team has a particular focus on the biology of the insect stages of the parasite, which undertake an extraordinary journey from the blood meal to the salivary glands of the mosquito, thereby enabling malaria to be transmitted between individuals. His team works closely with collaborators to develop new genetic technologies that will facilitate the discovery of new drugs against the disease.
