Doctoral Grant (BOF), Structural and functional immunoparasitology - 2019BAPDOCPROEX216Posted by: University of Antwerp
Posted date: 2019-Jul-18
The Faculty of Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences is seeking to fill a full-time (100%) vacancy in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences for a
Doctoral Grant by the University Research Fund (BOF) in the area of structural and functional immunoparasitology
Description of the research group
The Laboratory of Medical Biochemistry has the following mission statement:
“unraveling the structure-function relationship of proteins with a relevance in human (patho)physiology, focusing on target finding, characterization and clinical applications”
We aim to fulfill this mission statement by employing a highly interdisciplinary research approach with a strong emphasis on placing the results within a biological/clinical context.
The malaria parasite has developed ingenious ways to bypass the host’s immune system in order to promote its survival. The circumsporozoite protein (CSP) plays a central role in the parasite’s immunobiology during the establishment of liver stage malaria. This project aims to unravel several aspects of the structure-function relationship of CSP which have remained enigmatic.
