Dr. Aminata LO THIAW obtained a Master’s degree with honors in Biology in Parasitology Department of the Faculty of Medicine of the University Cheikh Anta Diop/Dakar. She served on several projects (IPT-c, IPT-i, Randomized trial, Clinical Trial, WHO-TDR-FIND-Parasitology project, etc.) in areas of Senegal.
With a scholarship from a SMC project funded by Bill and Melinda GATES, she pursued postgraduate study at the University and done her lab work at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK and graduate with a doctorate degree in 2013. Her research work involved studying the molecular markers and immunity development during SMC in Senegal.

Currently as a postdoctoral fellow at NMIMR she works on a project that investigates malaria transmission in host and parasite diversity.
