Maggie Feeney is the Edward B. Shaw Professor of Pediatrics and Chief of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Global Health at UCSF.
She is the Principal Investigator of several NIH-funded projects focused on understanding immunity to malaria, identifying correlates of protective immunity to guide vaccine design, and investigating the impact of in utero antigen exposure on the fetal immune response to malaria and other perinatal pathogens. These studies utilize extensive immunology laboratory infrastructure that her group helped establish in Uganda.
