Dr. Md Tauqeer AlamI received my Ph.D in Molecular Parasitology from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, India and currently working as Research Associate at the Malaria Branch of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), Atlanta. For the past 10 years I have been working on different aspects of Plasmodium falciparum and P. vivax malaria. My Ph.D work led to the identification of a novel “Tryptophan-Rich Antigen” gene family in P. vivax (PvTRAg family). This study also established that these proteins interact with the human erythrocyte membrane, and are likely involved in host-parasite interaction. In addition, He has also developed molecular methods for the identification of several Anopheles vectors in India. During my Ph.D. He was the recipient of Junior and Senior Research Fellowships of the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR), Government of India.He received an American Society for Microbiology (ASM)-Postdoctoral Fellowship (2008-2010) to work at the CDC, where my current research is focused on investigating the origins and evolution of drug resistance in P. falciparum. He have studied evolving patterns of anti-malarial drug resistance in several countries in Southeast Asia, Africa and South America. He have authored 18 original research articles and one of them appeared on the cover page of the Journal of Infectious Diseases which describes the origins of multi drug resistant gene-1 duplication in relation to mefloquine resistance in the Cambodia. As part of my professional service, He have been reviewing research articles for many reputed journals including BMC Evolutionary Biology; Infection, Genetics & Evolution; Parasitology and Acta Tropica.
