Educational and work
I work on single-celled parasites called African trypanosomes. African trypanosomes present a significant burden to large areas of sub-Saharan Africa, leading to an estimated $1.3 billion annual loss to the African economy. My research, funded by my Wellcome Trust senior fellowship, is focused on studying two main aspects of T.b. gambiense infections. 1. How the parasites cause infection? 2. How humans fight that infection?
