Parasitology Core Facility
The Parasitology Core Facility supports a variety of projects that focus on the parasite’s interactions with the mosquito vector and human host, and other biological processes that are associated with its capacity to transmit and infect.
The facility comprises a state-of-the-art tissue culture room with relevant equipment. The Parasitology Core Facility provides Plasmodium falciparum asexual blood- and gametocyte-stage cultures, and both human and rodent Plasmodium sporozoite stages to meet the needs of JHMRI-affiliated groups. Specialized services are also provided upon request.
