Research interests

I am a microbiologist with a longstanding interest in the biology of kinetoplastids, protozoan parasites that cause neglected diseases in humans and animals. My goal is to elucidate basic mechanisms of disease through the study of parasite cell biology. To harness genome, transcriptome and proteome data we developed CRISPR/Cas9 editing tools for kinetoplastids, which allow for rapid and precise modification of individual genes as well as large scale loss-of-function screens.

Current research projects

Contribution of membrane transporters to parasite fitness

Membrane transporters or channels act as gatekeepers to determine which substances enter or exit the cell. Possessing the correct set of transporters is vital for the parasite in each of its life cycle stages, to grow in a sand fly and to exploit its host cell, the macrophage, effectively. We are screening a library of membrane transporter mutants to discover which transporters are critical for survival in macrophages, what their functions are and whether they contribute to drug action.

Structure and function of the Leishmania flagellum

Eukaryotic flagella are conserved organelles with functions ranging from motility to cell adhesion and sensing. By studying the Leishmania flagellum we aim to gain insight into molecular mechanisms involved in the formation of a functional motile flagellum. We are currently using gene deletion libraries to study the functions of individual proteins and the role of cAMP signalling in the regulation of motility. We are also using pooled loss-of-function screens of a wider cohort of genes to discover their importance in parasite transmission and infection.
