Event Overview
Welcome message:

Malaria Immunology and Vaccination 2014 will be held in London, United Kingdom on July 2, 2014.

Malaria Immunology and Vaccination 2014 is a conference that addresses the mechanisms of immunopathology and immunity in order to facilitate vaccine design and the identification of additional therapies for treatment of severe malaria.

Malaria Immunology and Vaccination 2014 brings together:

  • Academic and Research Institutes: Lab Heads, Group, Research Students and Postdoctoral Scientists
  • Biotech and Pharma Industry: Chief Scientists, CEOs, Senior and Junior Scientists, Group Heads, Research Managers
Speakers/Faculty:
Simon Draper’s group is based at the Jenner Institute, University of Oxford. His research interests include studies of vaccine-induced malaria immunity as well as the optimisation of antibody induction by subunit vaccines against blood-stage malaria infection. In recent years, his group has developed novel vaccines targeting blood-stage antigens the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum, and these have been translated into Phase I/IIa clinical trials. His group are also focusing on the identification of new antigen combinations that may prove to be more successful in inducing protective efficacy against malaria by subunit vaccination in humans.

Britta Urban obtained a PhD at the Bernhard-Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine in Hamburg, Germany in 1996, investigating complement resistance of Enatamoeba histolytica. She joined the David Roberts' laboratory at Oxford University on a Research Fellowship awarded by the German Research Council to study immune responses toPlasmodium falciparum malaria. She demonstrated that P. falciparum-infected erythrocytes modulate dendritic cell phenotype and function in vitro. These results formed the basis of a Wellcome Trust Career Development Fellowship where she investigated the role of dendritic cells in natural malaria infection in close collaboration with the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Collaborative Programme in Kilifi, Kenya. She was awarded a Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellowship in 2006 and has now moved with her group to Kilifi to study cellular immune responses to PfEMP-1. She is particularly interested to investigate whether the phenotypic properties of a given parasite isolate influence the immune response to that isolate.

An NHMRC Public Health Fellow, Freya Fowkes is Head of the Malaria and Infectious Disease Epidemiology group at the Burnet Institute. Freya is involved primarily in examining the epidemiology of malaria in particular analysing malaria immuno-epidemiological data from large population-based studies. She completed her doctorate in 2007 at the University of Oxford and has held research associate positions at the New York University School of Medicine and the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute.  Currently, Freya holds an adjunct senior research fellow position at Monash University and is an honorary fellow of the University of Melbourne.

Diana S. Hansen completed her PhD in 1998 at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. She turned to malaria research during her postdoctoral training at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, Melbourne, where she investigated inflammatory responses involved in the induction of cerebral malaria. Diana is now a Laboratory Head in the Division of Infection and Immunity at WEHI and an Executive Member of the Victorian Infection and Immunity Network. Her main research interests include mechanisms of pathogenesis and immunity to malaria, and she is pursuing those goals using infection models as well as humans studies.
