Global Experts Meeting on Infectious Diseases
Walailak University, Thailand
Voravuth Somsak has completed my PhD in Biochemistry from Chiang Mai University in 2011 with the malarial research expecially genetic engineering of malaria parasite and discovery of plant extracts to have antimalarial activity using malarial-mouse model as a tool. I am a Vice Dean and the Director of Research Department, School of Allied Health Sciences, Walailak University, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand. Publications related to malaria researches have been published in PubMed. Voravuth Somsak has expertise in malaria research in mouse model including development and discovery the medicinal plant extracts to exert antimalarial activity. Additionally, generation of transgenic Plasmodium berghei in mice as in vivo model for antimalarial drug screening has been done. So far, malaria researches including prophylactic, suppressive, and curative activities of medicinal plant extracts as well as toxicity in mice against malaria mouse model are working on.
