    About This Project

    During a malaria infection, parasites sneakily reside inside human red blood cells. They need to make their host cell surface sticky, in order to avoid being filtered out by the spleen. Our goal is to understand the biochemical details of how malaria parasites remodel the red blood cell surface.
