Research Interest

"In my research, I focus on studying the role of human microRNAs in the pathogenesis of the complications during Plasmodium falciparum infection. Since altered microRNA profiles have been described for many types of infections recently, microRNAs could be an appropriate drug target for the treatment of infectious disease. The role of human microRNAs in Malaria is not yet described in the literature."

Research Project

"I investigate the interaction of the parasite _Entamoeba histolytica_ with the host immune system, more specifically the involvement of extracellular vesicles (EVs). Monocytes and neutrophils in culture as well as organoids are implemented to study the immunostimulatory properties of these EVs."

Research Project

For my project I am currently investigating the cytoadhesion of transfected Plasmodium falciparum parasites to human brain endothelial cells and different endothelial receptors. Cerebral malaria is one of the severest forms of malaria infection and still costs about half a million lives per year. It is crucial therefore to understand the interaction of this parasite and the human host more thoroughly

Research Project

"I focus on the direct way of interaction between Plasmodium  falciparum and host endothelium, termed cytoadhesion. Besides, I am interested in one of secondary weapons of P.  falciparum, the extracellular vesicles. Characterization of these particles may help us better understand the pathogenesis of malaria infection."
