Plasmodium is the causative agent of Malaria. Till date, there is no effective vaccine to prevent malaria. The complexity of Plasmodium was underestimated for more than a century costing over several billions of lives in around the world and concentrated in Africa and Asia. Several parasite factors are involved to gain entry into the host cell and also to escape from the host immune system. My research interest is to understand host pathogen interactions and develop efficient intervention strategies to prevent invasion.
