Personal profile

Biography

Ghizal completed her PhD with Professor Brian Cooke at Monash University, Clayton and her main research interest was to characterise a set of novel kinases unique to malaria parasites. Ghizal is currently doing her postdoctoral research in Darren Creek's laboratory and her main research interest has been to use a multi-omics approach to gain a deeper knowledge of (A) the understanding of the fundamental processes of the parasite’s life cycle, (B) the mechanism of drug resistance, and (C) novel/unique mechanisms of action of new antimalarials. In addition to this, Ghizal is also the proteomics lead of the Parkville node of the Monash Proteomics and metabolomics Facility.
