Back to Who we are

Dr Paul Denny


Honorary Treasurer (2016-2019)

Paul undertook PhD studies at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research focused on the vestigial plastid of the apicomplexan protozoa. Subsequently during research posts at Imperial College he developed interests in the molecular and cellular biology of kinetoplastid protozoan parasites, most notably Leishmania species. Since his arrival at Durham University in 2004 Paul has used multidisciplinary approaches to study and exploit novel drug targets within both kinetoplastid and apicomplexan pathogens.

As a member of BSP Council Paul would like to highlight the interactions of parasitology with the physical sciences and industry, with a view to helping the field move forward in new and exciting directions.
