Colin's research falls into 3 main areas: Plasmodium falciparum gametocyte biology, malaria drug resistance and molecular diagnostics for malaria infections. The following projects are currently active in the lab:

  1. Drug resistant genotypes associated with reduced susceptibility of African P. falciparum
  2. New molecular tools for diagnosis of parasitic infections
  3. Population biology of P. ovale curtisi and P. ovale wallikeri .
  4. In vitro drug responses of parasites isolated from malaria patients treated at the Hospital for Tropical Diseases (HTD), London.
  5. In vitro drug suscetibility of P. knowlesi 
  6. EDCTP-funded studies of ACT therapy for children with malaria in West Africa
  7. ACCESS-SMC - monitoring and evaluation of parasite drug resistance
