Dominic holds a joint appointment between the University of Oxford and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, where he leads a programme of collaborative research focused on building data-sharing networks and the necessary infrastructure to generate data on genomic diversity and evolution of pathogen and vector populations. Working with collaborators in more than 20 countries, primarily through MalariaGEN, Dominic’s research focuses on investigating the biological and clinical consequences of genomic variation in human, Plasmodium and Anopheles populations. Ultimately, the goal is to translate advances in genome science into clinical and epidemiological applications that will reduce the burden of infectious disease in the developing world. He provides leadership to a number of discreet large-scale collaborations including the MalariaGEN Consortial Projects, Anopheles gambiae 1000 Genomes, Plasmodium falciparum 3000 genomes, and MalariaGEN P. falciparum Community Project, and routinely shares his experience with several other large-scale data-sharing initiatives including the WorldWide Antimalarial Resistance Network (WWARN), PneumoGEN and the African Plasmodium Diversity Network (PDNA).
