PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

The biology of the mitochondrion of apicomplexan parasites

Our lab has a long-standing interest in the biology of the mitochondrion of apicomplexan parasites. The mitochondrion of these parasites has a range of canonical functions, including in the production of cellular energy (ATP), and the biosynthesis of important iron-containing protein co-factors such as haem and iron-sulfur clusters.
