My Science Work

A child dies from malaria every 2 minutes.
It's terrible.
Through her scientific research, Dr Rina has been battling a deadly disease called malaria.

 


Malaria is caused by tiny microbes called "P. falciparum". In fact you can see these parasites munching on infected red blood cells using a microscope. A person can 'catch' malaria via a mozzie bite in over 87 countries.

Working with scientists from within Australia and around the world, Dr Rina has been searching for new medicine to fight malaria parasite 'drug resistance' and learning more about the genetics (DNA) of these horrible bugs. 

Her research has taken her to the jungles of Papua New Guinea and to state-of-the-art facilities in the United States. She has presented her scientific work at numerous local, national and international conferences  and has received multiple awards and scholarships for her research and presentations. Some of her work and publications are described on this page.
