Citation on election

Professor Brown is a clinical academic with a distinguished research record in malaria and clinical infectious diseases. His substantial contribution to understanding immunity to malaria in humans includes specific discoveries related to the cellular and genetic mechanisms by which malariainfected red cells cause illness by sticking in blood vessels, or escape immunity by changing molecules at the cell surface. He is recognised for local and international leadership in clinical medicine, research, and global health, and as an exemplary mentor. As a recognised world authority on malaria, he currently chairs the Executive Committee of the global Roll Back Malaria Partnership Board.
