I am involved in a number of studies on the control of malaria in Africa using drugs and vaccines including trials of candidate malaria vaccine RTS,S/AS01 and od seasonal malaria chemoprevention. I am also an investigator in a study which is exploring ways of preventing malaria in pregnancy including a trial of screening women when they attend an antenatal clinic and treating just those who are positive for malaria as opposed to give antimalarials to all pregnant women without screening.
Meningococcal disease in Africa
I coo-ordinate the The African Meningococcal Carriage Consortium (MenAfriCar) which is evlauating the impact of a new serogroup A meningoccocal conjugate vaccine (MenAfriVac) on meningococcal menigitis and meningococcal carriage as this vaccine is roled out progressively across the African meningitis belt.
In The Gambia the impact of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines on invasive pneumococcal disease and pneumonia following their introduction into the routine ERPI programme is being investigated and a trial of a novel pneumococcal protein vaccine in infants is nearing completion.
I am a member of a team from LSHTM setting up a trial of an Ebola vaccine in Sierra leone.
