RESEARCH TOPICS

We are studying Toxoplasma gondii, an obligate intracellular parasite, which is both an important opportunistic pathogen and a model for the cell biology of related parasites in the Apicomplexa phylum. The strategy we developed to study gene(s) and pathway(s) controlling the resistance to toxoplasmosis has been recently expanded to other pathologies, tularemia and Crohn disease. In all cases, the susceptibility vs resistance is dependent on both pathogen and host determinants.
