Interested in Parasite Genomics, Microbiome, Molecular Medicine and Structural Biology. Our laboratory takes a multi-disciplinary approach towards understanding malaria parasite proteins. We aim to highlight the principles that govern biological function of some key parasite proteins. Towards this end, we rely extensively on bioinformatics, biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, parasitology, protein crystallography and in silico inhibitor discovery. The current focus of research includes target the protein translation machinery from malaria parasites for novel drug discovery. The research program spans experimental work starting from parasite genomics to target and inhibitor discovery, with the aim of providing potentials leads as anti-malarial. We have also initiated a new program on molecular medicine that aims at using tools to understand prevalent non-communicable diseases.
