A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

About

Over the last two decades, my research program has been focused on antimalarial drug resistance (including P. falciparum and P. vivax parasites) along my different positions in the Institut Pasteur International Network, in Africa (Central African Republic, 2000-2004 and Madagascar, 2005-2008) or in Southeast Asia (Cambodia 2010-2017). I have conducted complementary studies in Madagascar and in Cambodia, based on molecular diagnostic strategies and field-based investigations, with the aims to improve our understanding on the epidemiological features of malaria endemicity and help policy makers to conduct elimination plans. Particularly, studies focused on epidemiologically associations between human host and susceptibility to P. vivax malaria have allowedto to demonstrate that P. vivax in Madagascar is causing blood stage infection and clinical disease in Duffy-negative individuals. In Cambodia, more recently, my research on P. falciparum drug resistance have been focused on the development of new in vitro assays to better characterize P. falciparum isolates resistant to artemisinin or to piperaquine. My major achievements have been to demonstrate that mutations in the propeller domain of a Kelch gene located on chromosome 13 (K13) and amplification of plasmepsin 2-3 genes are major determinants of artemisinin and piperaquine resistances, respectively. With my colleagues involved in the KARMA project, we have recently provided a worldwide mapping of the K13 polymorphisms.
Since September 2017, I have a new position at Institut Pasteur Paris, as the head of the Malaria Genetic and Resistance Group hosted by the Biology of Host-Parasite Interactions Unit. I have published >150 peer-review articles in international journals (http://publicationslist.org/didier.menard).
