Immunobiology of Chagas Disease
UGA - Tarleton Lab
Athens, United States
We are broadly interested in immunity to Trypanosoma cruzi, and particularly in the role of CD8+ T cells in control of this infection. Other interests include development of improved diagnostics and methods for assessing treatment efficacy, vaccine development, and genomic, proteomic, transcriptomic and bioinformatic approaches to better understanding the biology of T. cruzi and combating Chagas disease.
Vesicles from different Trypanosoma cruzi strains trigger differential innate and chronic immune responses.
