Welcome to the Parasitology Unit at the Centre for Infectious Diseases
Parasitology is a science at the heart of clinical medicine, epidemiology, immunology, molecular biology and biochemistry.
It deals with some of the most important infectious diseases of mankind.
Parasitology has the potential to help us understand questions regarding the complexity of life and the interactions between different species.

BECAUSE IT HAS TO HAPPEN FAST - THE UNUSUAL MULTIPLICATION OF MALARIA PATHOGENS
In their newest paper (first author: PhD student Severina Klaus) published in “Science Advances” our colleagues of the Ganter lab and their collaborators show how the malaria pathogen Plasmodium manages to multiply rapidly in nutrient-poor blood cells.
