Jason joined the Mueller Lab as a PhD student in 2017. His research interests are: help to fill the gap of understanding of the immunity acquired to Malaria vivax in different epidemiological settings, and the burden of disease attributed to P. vivax relapses through sensitive tools and quantitative data analysis. He will validate the utility of P. vivax antigens to identify individuals with high risk of relapsing due to hypnozoites activation, as well their utility as sero-surveillance tool at a population level, and develop a new amplicon based genotyping tool to relapses identification.
