Dr. Aly's research focuses on the biology and host-parasite interactions of the malaria parasite in the mosquito and the mammalian hosts. His ultimate research goals are to discover novel potent drug targeting and subunit vaccine candidates and the generation of effective and safe whole organism vaccines to help eradicate malaria. He aims to use his expertise in Plasmodium targeting techniques in the generation of attenuated parasites as live vaccines and tailor-made transgenic Plasmodium parasite strains as tools to explore the functions of various Plasmodium proteins and their essential roles in the malaria parasite life cycle. He will use the rodent malaria parasite models and Anopheles mosquitoes to generate and study all life cycle stages of Plasmodium. In his teaching approach, he tries to simplify the teaching material by giving examples from everyday life to gain the attention of the students and catalyze their conceptual involvement.
