Shrinking the Malaria Map

UCSF Global Health Group’s Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI)

Bryan Greenhouse

Bryan Greenhouse is an Associate Professor in the Division of HIV, Infectious Diseases and Global Medicine within the UCSF Department of Medicine. His research program brings together laboratory and analytical tools to understand and measure the transmission, epidemiology, and immunology of malaria, primarily in sub-Saharan Africa. Bryan’s research group aims to study malaria in its natural environment, drawing upon data and samples collected from field surveillance or clinical trials conducted in malaria-endemic areas. His current projects focus on understanding the development of naturally acquired immunity and creating novel, antibody-based tools to measure malaria exposure and immunologic protection. Other areas of focus include the improvement of diagnostics, as well as the use of parasite population genetics and spatial data to understand parasite transmission and evolution.

Bryan’s lab is based at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, where he is an investigator. He has been based at UCSF, where he completed subspecialty training in Infectious Diseases, since 2004. He has an MD from the University of Pennsylvania, an MA in Biostatistics from the University of California, Berkeley, and a BA in Biology from Williams College.
