Institute for Endemic Diseases, University of Khartoum, Sudan
Muntaser Ibrahim is Associate Professor and Head of Department at the Institute for Endemic Diseases, University of Khartoum. Muntaser has had a major interest in the immuno-epidemiology of malaria in the low-transmission setting, and is expanding this to include epidemiological studies in a region where malaria is more endemic.
A specific focus of his research is to define ethnic differences in susceptibility to malaria, at both the immunological and genetic levels, and to establish the epidemiological infrastructure to dissect the molecular basis of these differences by genomic association analysis.
Muntaser Ibrahim and his team at the Institute for Endemic Disease are contributing to Consortial Project 2 and Consortial Project 3.
