Darren uses advanced metabolomics and systems pharmacology approaches to investigate microbial pathogens and facilitate the discovery of medicines for infectious diseases including malaria and sleeping sickness (human African trypanosomiasis). His current research in the Drug Delivery Disposition and Dynamics theme at MIPS continues to develop novel metabolomics techniques and apply them to parasitology and pharmacology. This work has provided insights into protozoan parasite metabolism, in vitro culture medium development, and mechanisms of action and resistance for drugs against malaria and trypanosomiasis.
