Grant Dorsey studied in University of California USA. His research has primarily focused on clinical and molecular studies of malaria with a focus on antimalarial drug therapy. His studies have been influential in the rapidly changing approach to antimalarial therapy within Uganda and around Africa. Complementary projects, frequently undertaking by American and African trainees, have involved studies of asymptomatic parasitemia; malaria related knowledge, attitudes and practices; studies of severe malaria; reviews on malaria treatment policy; predictors of response to antimalarial therapy; and the role of host polymorphisms in malaria incidence and response to therapy.
