    • Research Interests:
    • Dr. Nyalwidhe is interested in the application of functional, expressional and structural proteomics approaches to the study of human diseases with emphasis on infectious diseases and cancer. This includes research on human malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum, a variety of other infectious agents, prostate cancer and viral-induced carcinomas, in addition to other forms of cancer.

      The focus is on the mechanisms of interaction between infectious pathogens and their host cells, the mechanism of metastasis in cancer and the analysis of the proteome of human body fluids to identify clinically useful biomarkers for the diagnosis and prognosis of disease. Dr. Nyalwidhe is also using molecular biology and different mass spectrometry techniques in analyzing, monitoring and quantifying post-translational modifications in proteins to determine their influence in the progression and outcome of disease.
