Mary R Galinski, PhD

Professor of Medicine, Infectious Diseases and Global Health

Emory University School of Medicine


Dr. Galinski's laboratory, located at the Emory Vaccine Center at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center, develops projects addressing molecular and cell biology, immunology, genetics, pathogenesis and epidemiology questions that are pertinent to understanding the complexities of MALARIA and the hurdles faced in developing and implementing effective malaria vaccines and drugs. The team is focused on advancing basic, pre-clinical and clinical research goals, while also making a difference immediately in the lives of people living in malaria endemic countries.  In line with Emory University’s strategic plan and goals pertinent to internationalization, global health and developing nations, her research program has become the springboard for developing Emory’s International Center for Malaria Research, Education and Development (ICMRED).
