Microbial eukaryotes represent a large component of the biosphere, with contributions to ecology, food security and the environment, while diseases caused by parasitic protozoa constitute a major global threat. Our work melds several key aspects of protist biology, principally focusing on the parasitic organisms of the trypanosomatid group, but also extending into environmental organisms, such as the algae Euglena. We are also working on understanding the mode of action of protist drugs as well as developing novel appraoches towards therapy against protist diseases.
