Leveraging sexual recombination to find new interventions to combat malaria

Vaughan Lab

The mission of the Vaughan Lab ultimately is to alleviate the suffering of those affected by the disease malaria, which kills upwards of 400,000 people, mostly young children, every year. We study both the human malaria parasites Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax as well as the rodent malaria models Plasmodium yoelii and Plasmodium berghei.

Experimental Genetic Crosses

Our ability to maintain the complete life cycle of Plasmodium falciparum in a lab setting as well as our ability to create experimental genetic crosses between different parasite strains enables us to ask questions about parasite recombination and acquisition and spread of drug resistance.
