A new drug target against Malaria


  [Communiqué] The team of Dr Chetan Chitnis from Institut Pasteur, LabEx ParaFrap partner, studied the blood stage of the parasite Plasmodium falciparum, which causes the severest and most deadly form of malaria, and found a mechanism which could lead to new and efficient drugs against Malaria. The results o... Read more

ParaFrap, the French Alliance for Parasitology and Health Care, is a LabEx (Laboratory of Excellence) created by the French Ministry of Research in 2012 and regrouping currently 17 leading Parasitology groups in France
Plasmodium, Toxoplasma, Trypanosoma, Leishmania, Entamoeba, Theileria

  • New scientific opportunities are provided by the recently available genome information for most major parasites and their hosts
  • Combining the state-of-the-art of fundamental research and translational applications we expect to defeat major parasitic diseases such as malaria, toxoplasmosis, leishmaniasis, African trypanosomiasis, amoebiasis and theileriosis
  • herapeutic involvements (diagnostics, drugs and vaccines)
  • ParaFrap will contribute to the future through a national student training
    PhD program termed "ParaFrap Training"
