Dr

Philippe Boeuf

 

Dr Philippe Boeuf is a research fellow at the Department of Medicine at The University of Melbourne. During his PhD at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, and using a combination of lab-based and field research, he showed that severe anaemia and cerebral malaria, the two main forms of severe paediatric malaria, were associated with specific immune profiles.

In 2005, he joined the lab of Pr Stephen Rogerson and focused his efforts on gaining a better understanding of the pathogenetic mechanisms underlying the poor outcomes associated with placental malaria. He has generated seminal data on decreased transplacental transport of maternal nutrients as a mechanism of disease in malaria in pregnancy. This discovery opens the way to intervention studies to alleviate the burden of malaria in pregnancy.
