Hi! I am Chandra Mani Kafle, and I am a Ph.D. candidate at Miami University, pursuing a degree in microbiology.

My current research focuses on understanding how some viral proteins regulate the host’s cell cycle during infection. Apart from my research, I teach a microbiology lab course designed for microbiology-major and non-major students. In my academic journey so far, I have had the privilege of participating in several scientific conferences, meetings, and symposiums. I enjoyed opportunities to communicate my research to broader audiences. When I am not at my lab doing or thinking about my experiments for my research,  I like to experiment with the aperture and shutter speed on my camera, write some science in lay terms (for magazines or newspapers), and hike in nature.

Masters of Science in Microbiology

For the fulfillment of my master’s degree, I studied the efficacy of artemether-lumefantrine for the treatment of uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum malaria in Nepal. We found that the combination therapy using artemether-lumefantrine was effective for the treatment of uncomplicated falciparum malaria in Nepal. This project was advised by Dr. Prakash Ghimire and Dr. Komal Raj Rijal.
