Tribute to Professor Dominic Kwiatkowski

We are very sad to share news of the death of Professor Dominic Kwiatkowski. He was the Director of the Centre for Genomics and Global Health, and held a joint position as MRC Clinical Research Professor at Oxford University, and as a Principal Investigator at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.

Professor Philippe Guérin, Director of IDDO and WWARN said: "It is a great loss for the malaria research community. Dominic was involved in the development of the WorldWide Antimalarial Resistance Network (WWARN) right from the start, and he led the MalariaGEN Resource Centre for about two decades."

Professor Kwiatkowski's research group helps to develop data-sharing networks to tackle fundamental scientific problems that can be solved only by engaging many different research groups around the world. As the MalariaGEN Resource Centre, it provides support and training in genetics, statistics, informatics and ethics for researchers in many malaria-endemic countries.

Our thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends at this sad time.
