Dr

Matt Dixon

 

Matthew is a Research Fellow in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the Bio21 Molecular Science and Biotechnology Institute, The University of Melbourne. Dr Dixon's research focuses on understanding the remodeling and cell biology processes driving the unique architectural changes undertaken by the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum.

These changes are central to the parasite's ability to survive within the red blood cells and circulation of the human host. In particular he is interested in the processes mediating cerebral and placental malaria and the mechanisms of sexual differentiation and transmission. Understanding these processes will help guide much needed new approaches aimed at disease eradication.
