Dr Bob Taylor
Senior Clinical Research Fellow
Dr Bob Taylor works on drug trials for vivax and falciparum malaria. In contrast with falciparum malaria, vivax malaria can relapse from dormant stage parasites in the patient’s liver. Primaquine is currently the only available drug to prevent relapse infections but can cause severe haemolysis in patients with reduced G6PD activity. Dr Taylor's research aims to determine the most effective and safest way to radically cure vivax malaria.
