Our laboratory is interested in developing novel genomic approaches to study infectious diseases and to address outstanding biological questions that cannot be easily studied with classical molecular biology approaches.
We are particularly interested in understanding the molecular and cellular interactions between eukaryotic parasites and their hosts, with a primary focus on Plasmodium vivax, an important malaria parasite. Our studies use a variety of state-of-the-art genomic assays – whole genome sequencing, high-throughput genotyping, dual RNA-seq, single cell RNA-seq and spatial transcriptomics – to analyze samples from malaria patients, animal models and in vitro cultures.
Interested in joining the lab?
If you would like to work with us as a postdoc, postbac, or as an intern, simply drop us an email (email@example.com). If you are interested in doing a PhD in the Serre lab, you will need to apply to a graduate program at the University of Maryland, Baltimore.
