Jean-Christophe Barale - Structural Microbiology Unit
Via combining expertise from the malaria-endemic region and knowledge-based research relying on multi-disciplinary approaches, this unit addresses P.falciparum-specific mechanisms of resistance and aims at validating new anti-malarial candidates active on multi-resistant parasites.
Didier Ménard - Malaria Genetics and Resistance Group, Biology of Host-Parasite Interactions Unit
In the context of malaria elimination, the vision of this team is to address new challenges created by the changing epidemiology of malaria, especially the emergence and spread of P. falciparum resistance to antimalarial drugs.
Brice Rotureau - Trypanosome Transmission Group, Trypanosome Cell Biology Unit
The researchers investigate the development and transmission of dermal trypanosomes that represent a reservoir of parasites possibly involved in Human African Trypanosomiasis relapses.
Gerald Spaeth - Molecular Parasitology and Signaling
Applying population-genetics approaches and conducting evolutionary studies in animals and in culture, this unit has identified novel mechanisms of Leishmania genomic adaptation.
