Malaria's New Boss

Christian Loucq has just been named director of the PATH Malaria Vaccine Initiative in Seattle, Washington. Loucq joined MVI to head up strategy and operations just as the Initiative's director Melinda Moree was leaving in February (coincidence?) and has previously worked in vaccine development at GlaxoSmithKline and Acambis. He'll have his hands full testing and possibly developing a half dozen potential malaria vaccines. He also needs to update his LinkedIn profile.

Update (June 5): By the way, Melinda Moree is now at Applied Strategies, a consulting and software company.
