Dr Ronan Jambou, a researcher at the Pasteur Institute, is to be a Visiting Fellow in the Department of Pathology for two years working in the laboratory of Professor Georges Grau, Vascular Immunology Unit, Faculty of Medicine and Bosch Institute.
As a distinguished researcher in clinical and experimental malaria, Dr Jambou will develop several projects and implement collaborative works with Professors Grau and Hunt. This will build on the existing collaborations between them and European and African scientists, funded through a European Union Framework 6 grant on the role of microparticles in cerebral malaria.
Dr Jambou also plans to bring overseas students to Professor Grau’s lab and will help organise the Pasteur Institute to host University of Sydney students in Paris, Ivory Coast and Senegal. He and his students will be housed in the newly renovated Flight Deck area of the Medical Foundation building.
