Dr. Steve Meshnick has worked on tropical infectious diseases, especially malaria, for over 30 years and has produced more than 300 scientific publications on them. He has a long-standing commitment to training and capacity-building and has been the primary mentor for 32 doctoral students and for eight post-docs, including many from developing countries.
His research group has studied a variety of aspects of malaria, including: drug resistance, pathogenesis, prevention, spatial epidemiology and population genetics, with a focus on how malaria affects pregnant women.
