Jake Baum - EXPeditions

Jake Baum

Co-Director of the Institute of Infections, Imperial College London, UK

I’m an infectious disease researcher and cell biologist at Imperial College London. I am focused on better understanding the malaria parasite.

In my lab, we use microscopy, molecular biology and genetics to look at the malaria parasite in all of its rich biology to try and make discoveries about its fundamental workings that are translatable towards what we hope could be a malaria vaccine.
