Dr Grigg Goes Big in Fight Against Monkey Malaria


Dr Matthew Grigg is an award winning scientist, specialising in the field of malaria.


Originating from Flow region 95.3fm Patchewollock, Dr Grigg has always kept in touch with his rural roots, working in a number of rural communities around the world, saving lives.

Late last year, he was also named the 2017 NT Young Tall Poppy Scientist of the Year for his ongoing research into Plasmodium knowlesi malaria - a type of monkey malaria transmitted to humans via mosquitoes, found in South-east Asia.

Dr Grigg joined Anita on the Country Viewpoint to share his story and inspire other young people living in regional areas to pursue their goals in the fields of science and health.


Flow FM congratulates Dr Grigg on all his success!
