Research Summary

I am interested in exploring the cell cycle mechanisms governing a G0 stress response (dormancy) in Plasmodium falciparum, the eukaryotic pathogen that causes malaria. It is proposed that dormancy is correlated with the delayed clearance rates of parasite burden in patients that have a persistent malarial infection not cleared by conventional antimalarial compounds. This is most commonly seen along the Thailand/Cambodia border, the epicenter of the emergence of drug resistant Plasmodium falciparum.
