Ms. Dulcie Lautu
Researcher, Papua New Guinea Institute of Medical Research (PNGIMR)

During her sabbatical at WEHI, Ms. Lautu used novel genomic approaches to investigate drug resistant genes in parasites that were collected from Papua New Guinea. Her research interests include molecular surveillance and the development of genomic tools for malaria. She plans to build on this research and will be starting a PhD program later this year.
