The role of hepatic type cell polarity during Plasmodium liver stage infection
ID: 221854
Start date: 2008-05-01, End date: 2010-04-30
Plasmodium parasites are the causative agents of malaria, amongst the most prevalent and severe human infectious diseases. Plasmodium sporozoites are injected into the mammalian host during the bite of an anopheline mosquito, and rapidly migrate to the liver where they invade...

Deciphering the molecular basis of neurodegenerative diseases associated with protein misfolding for the development of novel therapeutics
ID: 203312
Start date: 2007-09-03, End date: 2011-09-02
Protein misfolding is a fundamental problem in biology which is associated with several neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, and Prion diseases. The overall goal of my research will be to contribute for the understanding of how protein ...

Chromatin and antigenic variation: The role of histone H1 in gene regulation in African trypanosomes
ID: 256299
Start date: 2010-04-01, End date: 2014-03-31
Trypanosoma brucei is a unicellular parasite that causes African sleeping sickness, a fatal disease in humans. There is no vaccine and drugs are very scarce and toxic. T. brucei evades the host immune system by periodically changing its dense, uniform coat of variant surface ...

The role of EGF/ERK signaling pathway during the wound healing response in Drosophila and zebrafish epithelia
ID: 255573
Start date: 2010-09-01, End date: 2012-08-31
Epithelia act as physical barriers that protect living organisms from the surrounding environment. Therefore, the organization and homeostasis in epithelial tissues requires robust mechanisms that assure their integrity in a variety of biological situations, such as normal ce...

Membrane-active peptides across disciplines and continents: An integrated approach to find new strategies to fight bacteria, dengue virus and neurodegeneration
ID: 247513
Start date: 2010-02-01, End date: 2014-01-31
Peptide-lipid interactions are critical in several biomedical matters that seem uncorrelated at a first glance. MEMPEPACROSS deals with some of these: 1) Lipid membrane-interactions are the key for the understanding of dengue virus assembly and can constitute a target for its...
