Haldar Profile

Congratulations to Kasturi Haldar, the Rev. Julius Nieuwland Professor of Biological Sciences and recipient of the 2019 College Research Award. Kasturi is an internationally recognized scientist who joined the Department of Biological Sciences in 2008 as the Director for what is now the Boler-Parseghian Center for Rare and Neglected Diseases. During her research career, she has made ground-breaking discoveries to advance the understanding of malaria pathogenesis and to develop novel therapies in both infectious and genetic diseases. Her work over the past several years has revealed a molecular mechanism of how Plasmodium falciparum malaria develops resistance to artemisinins, front line antimalarials for which there are still no replacement therapies.
