Plasmodium development and mosquito transmission

We study the cell biology and evolution of malaria parasites to understand how they reproduce, interact with their hosts and get transmitted by mosquitoes. Through our global genetic screening approaches in a rodent model, we aim to create molecular and data resources that help shed light on the evolution of a divergent eukaryote and contribute to the development of new strategies for stopping malaria.
