Personal profile

Research interests

Professor Ric Price is an infectious disease and general physician on the staff at the Royal Darwin Hospital. He holds a dual academic affiliation as professor of global health at the Menzies School of Health Research and professor of tropical medicine at the Centre of Tropical Medicine, University of Oxford, UK. 

His translational research program focuses on improving the diagnosis and management of multidrug resistant Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax infections through a research agenda that spans clinical studies, epidemiology, health economics, pathophysiology, immunology, in vitro studies and molecular biology.
 
He is currently leading multicentred clinical trials in more than seven malaria endemic countries to optimise the use of primaquine for the radical cure of vivax malaria.
 
Professor Price chairs the clinical module of the World Wide Antimalarial Resistance Network (WWARN) and the Vivax Working Group of the Asia-Pacific Malaria Elimination Network (APMEN). 

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
