Research Interest

My research experiences and interests cover the Babesia, Anaplasma, and Trypanosoma in farm and pet animals. My lab uses a multidisciplinary approach that exploits protein chemistry, bioinformatics, molecular biology, immunocytochemistry, and genetic techniques to investigate the molecular processes involved in the biology of hemoprotozoa. An ultimate goal of this work is to identify potential protein targets that may be used to develop new antiparasitic chemotherapeutic agents.
