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 Parasitology and Mycology  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.
