Professor of Parasitology, Department of Pathology
David Dunne’s research group carries out immuno-epidemiological studies on human parasitic infections in disease endemic settings. This multidisciplinary work not only seeks to inform efforts to control ‘neglected tropical diseases’ but also provide insights into fundamental aspects of human/pathogen biology. His research programmes are carried in close, long-term, partnership with African researchers and health workers, and currently include studies in rural areas of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Mali, Ghana and Gabon. David has served on numerous advisory boards and funding panels that support African research and scientific capacity strengthening, and he leads the ‘Cambridge in Africa’ initiative to provide Cambridge institutional support for African research and scholarship across all academic disciplines.
