The University is saddened to hear of the passing of Professor Malcolm Molyneux OBE (1943-2021), founding co-director of the Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Programme (MLW).
Professor Molyneux joined the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) and University of Liverpool in 1984 and during his illustrious career made an enormous contribution to improving health in Malawi.
His interests were in general medicine and infectious diseases, with a research emphasis on malaria. As Director of MLW (1995-2007), Professor Molyneux always energetically supported training opportunities for Malawian clinicians and scientist and as a result, the learning and training centre on the MLW campus was named in his honour.
Professor Molyneux and his wife Liz, a consultant paediatrician, were both awarded the OBE by the Queen in 2006. They returned from Malawi to live in Liverpool in December 2015, from where they continued to support and collaborate in research and training in Malawi and other low-income countries.
LSTM has published a full tribute to Professor Molyneux today, which can be read here: In Memoriam: Professor Malcolm Molyneux (1943 – 2021) | LSTM (lstmed.ac.uk)
