Malcolm S. Duthie, PhD Malcolm S. Duthie, PhD

Senior Scientist

Malcolm Duthie is a Senior Scientist at IDRI. Malcolm's main research interest lies in determining and examining the host/pathogen interactions that initiate and control immune responses, how these interactions can be beneficially manipulated, and ultimately, their practical application within disease control programs.

Malcolm began his work in Seattle when he joined Dr. Stuart Kahn's laboratory at the University of Washington, examining protective and pathologic immune responses during experimental T. cruzi infection. After transitioning from Dr. Kahn's laboratory to IDRI, Malcolm continued investigating T. cruzi infection and became involved with IDRI's leprosy vaccine development program. In 2006, Malcolm began spearheading IDRI's leprosy program and is currently working with collaborators in several countries to develop new diagnostic tools and identify vaccine candidates to improve the treatment of leprosy. Prior to coming stateside, Malcolm worked as a tutor in the departments of Immunology, Medical Microbiology, and Medicine at the University of Edinburgh. He also served as the secretary of the Edinburgh University Medical Microbiology Society. Malcolm is currently a member of both the British Society for Immunology and the American Association of Immunologists.

Malcolm received his BSc with honors in Immunology from the University of Glasgow in Scotland. He then went on to earn his PhD from the University of Edinburgh, where his graduate research culminated in his thesis, entitled "Local Effects of Ultraviolet Radiation on Cutaneous Immune Responses."
