Research Summary

My research on malaria bridges field studies and molecular assays. I have studied drug-resistant falciparum malaria in Cambodia for many years, but also have a longstanding interest in relapses caused by Plasmodium vivax. More recently, I have launched a study of the asymptomatic malaria reservoir in Bagamoyo, Tanzania. We are using mosquito feeding assays to better understand when those with low-density parasitemia contribute to malaria transmission. Learn more about Dr. Lin at the Infectious Diseases, Epidemiology and Ecology Lab (IDEEL) website.
