UCR Today: Cell Biologist to Begin Work on Discovering Structure of Malaria Parasite Genome

The University of California, Riverside and the University of Washington have received a four-year grant of more than $2 million from the National Institutes of Health to discover this 3-D structure of Plasmodium’s genome during the parasite’s erythrocytic cycle that is responsible for disease in humans.

The erythrocytic cycle that the researchers will study is a 48-hour cycle that can repeat for several days or weeks in humans.

Karine Le Roch, an associate professor of cell biology and neuroscience, is the principal investigator of the grant
