Dr Julian Rayner

Title: 

Senior Group Leader

Institution: 

Malaria Programme, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, UK

Title: 

Director of Scientific Conferences and Engagement

Institution: 

Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, UK

Julian's primary research interest is investigating the molecular details of the interactions between P. falciparum and human red blood cells (erythrocytes), with a particular focus on genomic and proteomic approaches. By understanding erythrocyte invasion in depth, his group aims to identify molecular steps in the invasion process that could be targeted by new drugs or vaccines. As Director of Scientific Conferences and Engagement for the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Julian will be leading campus-wide efforts to communicate the technology and implications of genomics to scientists, clinicians, teachers, students and the broader public.
