Our Projects:

Unravelling the pathogenicity of Entamoeba histolytica

  • Identification and characterization of new virulence factors
  • Deciphering the invasion process
  • Function of E. histolytica-derived extracellular vesicles


Deciphering the complex interaction of Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes with the human host

  • Analysis of the binding properties between PfEMP1 proteins and endothelial cell receptors
  • Influence of cytoadhesion of P. falciparum infected erythrocytes on endothelial cells
  • Influence of extracellular vesicles secreted by P. falciparum infected erythrocytes on endothelial cells
