Anti-Malarial Compounds That Target the Cytostomal Endocytic Pathway

Michael Klemba of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in the U.S. will identify anti-malarial compounds from the Malaria Box that function as inhibitors of the cytostomal endocytic pathway used by the malaria parasite P. falciparum to internalize host erythrocyte proteins. Characterizing the molecular mechanisms of this process could lead to the discovery of new anti-malarial compounds.
