Molecular and cellular biology of Trypanosomatid Parasites
Uncovering the fundamental biology of host-parasite relationships
Our lab investigates how trypanosomatid protozoan parasites are resilient and so spread in nature at molecular and cellular levels. Our work focuses on how these parasites enter into host cells, mechanism of action of parasite virulence factors and developmental changes on the necessary for a successful colonisation of their hosts.
