    Research Summary

    My Ph.D. research topic focuses on hepatocyte stages of Plasmodium berghei and novel drug development against the increasing resistance against current treatments for malaria as well as the lack of drugs targeting liver stage parasites. Elucidation of the mechanism of action of these discovered drugs and their targets are some of the many goals of my thesis.
