The Beverley Laboratory focuses on the molecular genetics of protozoan parasites, including some of the most deadly pathogens known. Much of our work centers around the trypanosomatid protozoan Leishmania, a deep branching eukaryote with many fascinating differences from more ‘standard’ cells. Recently we have moved into the study of the role of endogenous protozoan viruses in virulence, in Leishmania as well as other parasites.
