Malick Gibani is a Clinical Lecturer and Specialist Registrar in Infectious Diseases and Medical Microbiology. He completed his basic medical training at the University of Oxford, after which he continued his training in general medicine in London. He later joined the Oxford Vaccine Group in the Dept of Paediatrics, University of Oxford, where he undertook a DPhil with Andrew Pollard and Christine Rollier, focussing on the application of human challenge models to better understand pathogenesis and immunity to Salmonella Typhi and Paratyphi A. He has worked on a range of clinical vaccine trials including for Ebola, RSV and meningococcal disease.

Since 2019, he has worked as a clinical lecturer in the Department for Infectious Disease at Imperial College London. His research interests focus on the development of controlled human infection models and their application to accelerate vaccines for enteric diseases.

He is the PI on the Challenge Non-Typhoidal Salmonella  (CHANTS) project, which aims to develop a new controlled human infection model for Salmonella Typhimurium.
