Research Summary


The Baxter lab is interested in the innate immune response of
arthropods, especially the complement-like system in Anopheles gambiae,
host-pathogen interactions, and the development of new chemical entities
for the control of vector-borne disease. Our primary research tools are
biophysical methods, including macromolecular crystallography and
small-angle x-ray scattering, biochemistry and chemical biology. Our
approach is multi-disciplinary and interfaces with both cross-campus and
international collaborators studying vector biology and infectious disease.
