Steve Taylor

Summary

Steve Taylor is an infectious diseases clinician and is transitioning to independence as a laboratory-based investigator in translational studies of falciparum malaria in children and pregnant women. He contributes to DGHI's educational mission by delivering seminars, contributing to courses, and mentoring MScGH students interested in clinical or laboratory studies of malaria. From a research perspective, he anticipates designing projects with DGHI field partners in Eldoret, Kenya and enhancing nascent research efforts in Kigali, Rwanda. Finally, he maintains active collaborations with investigators working in more than a dozen African countries and hope to enhance their connections with Duke. He hopes to use malaria research as a tool to enhance educational and research products of Duke and investigators in malaria-endemic areas.
