Ramesh Thylur is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Penn State College of Medicine, Pennsylvania University, Hershey, USA. He received his PhD Degree in Medicine at Kyungpook National University, Republic of Korea. During his pre- and post-doctoral training, he worked in molecular immunology and cell biology at Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, Republic of Korea and in prostate cancer biology at Loyola University Medical Center, Chicago, USA. He worked as a Group leader at Drug discovery division of Skanda Lifesciences Pvt Ltd, India. His research is focused on cerebral malaria, one of the main health problems facing developing countries today. At present, preventative and treatment strategies are continuously hampered by the issues of the ever-emerging parasite resistance to newly introduced drugs, considerable costs and logistical problems. The main hope for changing this situation would be the development of effective malaria vaccines. An important part of this process understands the mechanisms of naturally acquired immunity to malaria. My focus is to understand the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum-host interactions and signaling mechanisms involved in the development of protective immunity to malaria and in malaria pathogenesis. Here asking how cytokine administration or inhibition of MAPK signaling protects cerebral malaria by controlling parasitaemia, pro-inflammatory responses, decreasing the infiltration of lymphocytes to the brain and modulating innate and adaptive immune responses, in order to develop next generation of therapeutic agents to eradicate malaria.
