Researchers at Yale study a wide variety of eukaryotic parasites including parasitic fungi, intracellular protozoa, and helminth worms. Current topics of interest include cellular and molecular strategies used for cellular entry and immune evasion; transcription and RNA processing in protozoa; and the interaction of parasites with their vectors.
