Metabolomic analysis of Leishmania
Grant number: 1006023 | Funding period: 2011 - 2013
Leishmania are single-celled parasites that target a major class of immune cell, affecting millions and killing thousands of people worldwide. We have developed new approaches for investigating how these parasites survive in the immune cells, and why different species of Leishmania cause markedly different pathologies. This information will be used to identify and validate new drug targets in these parasites.
