WR DTP fully-funded project: Dissecting the molecular machine responsible for singular antigen expression and immune evasion in African trypanosomes using cryoEM.

In the host-pathogen arms race, antigenic variation is one of the most powerful and highly sophisticated virulence mechanisms. Some of the deadliest parasites, such as African trypanosomes and malaria parasites, are able to systematically alter the identity of proteins displayed to the host immune system. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Helminth-induced changes to host haematopoiesis - a permanent problem?

More than a quarter of the global population is infected with a parasitic worm that causes a range of diseases. On-going work in our laboratories is focused on understanding how parasites such as schistosomes cause wide-ranging changes to host bone marrow and re-programme mammalian haematopoiesis. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Regulation of Leishmania cellular remodelling during life cycle transition

This project aims to investigate the signalling pathways that regulate key events in the life cycle of Leishmania and which protein kinases are essential and therefore potentially responsive to chemotherapeutic modulation. Read more

Macroevolutionary Dissection of Infection and Immunity in the Green Lineage

Extant land plants are continually challenged by a diverse set of microbes. An extensive body of work describes the range of beneficial, commensal, and detrimental microbes colonizing angiosperms (flowering plants) and the molecular processes associated with the establishment of symbiosis or immunity.
