Dr. Rintis Noviyanti
Senior Researcher Fellow, Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology

Rintis Noviyanti, BSc (Hons.), PhD is a Principal Investigator, Senior Research Fellow, and Unit Head at Malaria Pathogenesis Unit, the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology (EIMB) in Jakarta, Indonesia.  Dr Noviyanti’s research interests include understanding the host-parasite interaction, studying the genetic aspects of malaria parasites, and relating genomic information of the parasites with the host response.

The goal of Dr. Noviyant’s FIT2 collaboration with WEHI’s Dr. Hansen, Dr. Tham, and Professor Cowman was to identify the immune effector mechanisms and antigenic targets of naturally-acquired immunity to malaria, with the aim to apply these findings to the design of novel anti-malarial vaccine combinations.
