David Weatherall


Emeritus Professor

Prof Sir David Weatherall sadly passed away in 2018. His major research areas included the genetic, adaptive and environmental factors that modify the phenotype of common forms of thalasaemia in Asia, notably HbE beta thalassaemia, the population genetics of the thalassaemis with particular respect to varying susceptibility to malaria, and the development of partnerships between countries with and without expertise for the improved avoidance and management of the thalassaemias in Asian countries.
