by Kathleen McCoy |
Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2:30-3:30 p.m. Eugene Short Hall, room 206
The Alaska WWAMI Science in Medicine Lecture Series presents Dr. Gustavo Arrizabalaga, "When to move and when to stop: regulation of motility in the parasite Toxoplasma gondii," tomorrow at 2:30 in Eugene Short Hall, room 206.
Gustavo Arrizabalaga, Ph.D., Assistant Professor with the University of Idaho WWAMI Medical Education Program, will discuss the results of his research with Toxoplasma gondii--an obligate intracellular parasite capable of infecting virtually any nucleated cell from a wide range of mammalian and avian species. Toxoplasma is one of the most widespread and successful protozoan pathogens and is a common parasite in humans; it has become one of the main opportunistic pathogens in AIDS patients.
