French Parasitology Alliance For Health Care

ParaFrap studies focus on parasitic neglected diseases of increasing public health concern. New scientific opportunities are provided by the recently available genome information for most major parasites and their hosts.

ParaFrap projects are divided into four main workpackages or "WP" (click on the name of each WP to get the details):

WP1 : Post genomic data exploration

WP2 : Mechanisms of pathogenesis

WP3 : Parasite molecular and cellular biology

WP4 : Towards new intervention strategies against parasitic pathogens
