Trypanosome Cell Biology

PHILIPPE BASTIN Lab

 

Our lab is studying the role and functioning of the trypanosome flagellum, with perspectives in the field of both parasitology and genetic diseases.

 

Indeed, trypanosomes are significant parasites of man and cattle in central Africa and there are currently no efficient vaccines against them. Moreover, trypanosomes are also an excellent model to study human genetic diseases due to defects in cilia and flagella.

Our lab is a Pasteur full research unit and is affiliated to the Department of Parasites and Insect Vectors  and the Department of Cell Biology and Infection. We also belong to a larger CNRS unit (URA2581, headed by Artur Scherf) that involves three other teams working on Plasmodium and on Leishmania.

 

Our lab is member of the LabEx IBEID coordinated by Pascale Cossart and Philippe Sansonetti.

We and 3 other European groups have organised the 2nd European Cilia meeting in Paris.

The meeting was an impressive success with more than 400 delegates coming from 27 countries. Julien and Cécile gave oral presentations and Eloïse presented a poster.

The next meeting will take place in Amsterdam in 2016.
