Biography 

Pradip Rathod is a Professor of Chemistry and an Adjunct Professor of Global Health at the University of Washington. He has over 35 years of experience in malaria Research, first starting with development of nanomolar-level selective inhibitors against parasites, then understanding mechanisms of parasite evolution, and now looking at all aspects of malaria in India (Drug resistance, Pathogenesis, Transmission, Genomics, and Epidemiology).
