Karine Le Roch

Project Lead

The overall goal of the research in the Le Roch lab is to examine new therapeutic strategies against Apicomplexan parasites. We are particularly interested by understanding how malaria parasites direct their developmental programs over the course of their infectious cycle in both of their hosts: human and Anopheles mosquitoes. Using complementary molecular, cellular and systems biology approaches, we explore the connection between chromatin structure and the parasite transcriptome.
