A new study from the lab of Whitehead Institute Member Sebastian Lourido uses a method called thermal profiling to determine which proteins are involved in calcium signaling, an essential process that parasites use when invading host cells.
Haley Licon is a postdoc in Whitehead Institute Member Sebastian Lourido’s lab studying how the parasite Toxoplasma gondii switches between stages during infection. We sat down with Haley to learn more about her and her experiences in and out of the lab.
A paper from the lab of Whitehead Institute Member Rudolf Jaenisch suggests that the genetic material of SARS-CoV-2 can integrate into the host cell genome and be expressed in some patient-derived tissues.
Whitehead Member Sebastian Lourido discusses his work uncovering how the Toxoplasma parasite causes disease and the importance of understanding parasitic infections such as toxoplasmosis and malaria in the context of global health.
