Michael Duffy

Dr Michael Duffy is a Research Fellow at the School of Biosciences, Bio21 Institute, The University of Melbourne. He did his PhD in microbiology at the School of Veterinary Science and then post-doctoral research into Plasmodium falciparum for the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, but based at the Eijkman Institute in Jakarta Indonesia. He returned to University of Melbourne where his research has focussed on how elements of chromatin structure regulate gene expression in the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. This work developed through his study of the epigenetic control of antigenic variation in P. falciparum and has diversified into the broader study of unique chromatin proteins in P. falciparum, including variant histones and bromodomain proteins
