Welcome to the Field laboratory

   Microbial eukaryotes represent a major component of the biosphere, contributing to ecology, food security, and the environment, whereas diseases caused by parasitic protozoa constitute an ongoing global threat. Our work highlights several key aspects of protist biology, principally focusing on parasitic organisms of the trypanosomatid group, but also extending into environmental organisms such as the algae Euglena and Diplonema. We are also working on understanding the mode of action of anti-protist drugs, as well as developing novel approaches for therapy against protist disease focused on PROTAC technology.
