Personal Summary

Marcel Moyeh Nyuylam is an Assistant lecturer of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the Faculty of Science. He is a young scientist interested in malaria research geared towards evaluating the safety and efficacy of antimalarial drugs
His present research work for which he is pursuing a PhD is aimed at determining the efficacy and safety of artemisinin based antimalarial drug combinations in the South West Region as treatment guidelines evolved from single therapy through non-Artemisinin based combination therapy to Artemisinin based Combination Therapy. This project that started in 2003 will equally evaluate the evolution of molecular markers of resistance to antimalarials commonly used in the South West region of Cameroon. The outcome of his research work will enable policy makers decide on the choice of antimalarial drug to be used as first and second line drug. It will also serve as an alarm clock to alert policy makers to start considering alternative options when the drug in use is beginning to fail.

His research work has received funding from international funders through his supervisor Prof Wilfred Fon Mbacham. Funders for the project include the Gates and Melinder Foundation through the London School of hygiene and tropical Medicine, the international atomic energy agency and WHO/TDR
