Prof White’s research focus is the pathophysiology and treatment of malaria. He has concentrated on characterising antimalarial pharmacokinetic–pharmacodynamic relationships to improve the treatment of malaria and reduce the emergence of resistance. This contributed to developing artemisinin based combination treatment for falciparum malaria, and changing to artesunate for severe malaria. He currently chairs the WorldWide Antimalarial Resistance Network. Prof White also co-chairs the WHO GMP technical expert group on prevention and treatment of malaria and the WHO antimalarial treatment guidelines committee.
