Our team works mainly on socio-economically important parasites. Parasitic diseases cause millions of deaths and enormous suffering in people and animals around the world. Our main goal is to understand the molecular biology of parasites and the diseases that they cause, as this knowledge is critical in identifying and developing new treatments, vaccines and/or diagnostic tests for effective control.
