Drug discovery

We are developing inhibitors of pyrimidine biosynthesis and polyamine biosynthesis to treat malaria and African sleeping sickness.


Novel Metabolism and Regulation

We study polyamine and nucleotide metabolism in African trypanosomes to learn about novel metabolism and regulation.


We study the parasites that cause malaria and African sleeping sickness.
