Hello, we are the Lopez-Rubio lab. We use cutting edge technologies to understand DNA biology in Plasmodium falciparum, a unicellular eukaryotic parasite that causes the most severe form of malaria in humans. Our goal is to use our discoveries in new vaccine and antimalarial approaches.



We are an ATIP-AVENIR team studying Plasmodium falciparum nuclear biology. Our laboratory belongs to the Mivegec unit that groups several research groups working in infectious diseases and vectors. We are also part of a national consortium that integrates leading groups of the French parasitology community LabEx ParaFrap.
