Assistant Professor, Department of Biological Sciences & Eck Institute for Global Health
at University of Notre Dame
Dr. Cristian Koepfli obtained his PhD in microbiology from the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute in Basel, Switzerland. After stays in Australia and California he now directs a research group at the University of Notre Dame in the US. His research focuses on the diagnosis, epidemiology, and genomics of infectious diseases, in particular malaria parasites. He is an expert in the development of PCR assays for sensitive detection, and of next-generation sequencing-based assays for parasite genotyping. He applies these methods to surveys in Ethiopia, Kenya, Ghana and other countries, often including thousands of human blood samples.
