Biographies

Dave Kemp was Head of the Malaria and Scabies Laboratory at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research. He had expertise in the field of malaria research and in molecular biology in general. In 1983 while working at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (Melbourne), he and co-worker Robin Anders were the first to successfully clone plasmodium genes into E. coli bacteria, thus enabling the parasite proteins to be produced in large quantities for research. This was the very first beginnings of a malaria vaccine breakthrough and the start of defining the various malaria antigens and their antigenic diversity. Kemp was also heralded as a co-instigator of the malaria genome project - the first multicentre international basic science collaboration in the field - which was officially launched in 1996.
