Our laboratory is interested in the study of human pathogens, particularly trypanosomes and also others that cause so-called Neglected Tropical Diseases.
We develop computational tools and produce (and re-use) large data sets to formulate and guide our research hypotheses in the quest for new drugs and diagnostics. Smart and intensive data integration, data mining, and high-throughput assays and experiments are at the core of our research activities.
In particular, we have a special interest in the study of trypanosomes such as Trypanosoma cruzi (causative of Chagas disease).
